ATLANTA, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Blue Current Global Dividend Fund (NASDAQ: BCGDX) ("Fund") today announced the Fund received a Lipper Leader rating, earning a rating of '5' in the four of the five Lipper Leader categories for the three year and overall periods ending 9/30/17. The Fund earned Lipper's highest rating of '5' for Total Return (136 funds), Consistent Return (136 funds), Preservation of Capital (11,917 funds), and Tax Efficiency (136 funds) within Lipper's Global Equity Income classification.
Lipper Leaders is a mutual fund rating system that analyzes funds against a set of clearly defined metrics. The top 20% of funds receive a rating of '5' and are named Lipper Leaders. Overall ratings are based on an equal-weighted average of percentile ranks for each measure over a 3 year period.
"These ratings from Lipper are an important accomplishment and a testament to the Fund's investment strategy and team," said Paul Izlar, Head of Investor Relations for Blue Current Funds. "With yield in short supply and safe income streams providing little return, we strive to deliver an increasing cash flow stream to our investors each year that has compounded at an annualized rate of 10% since inception of the Fund."
Launched on September 18, 2014, the Fund, which is co-managed by Harry Jones and Dennis Sabo, has since grown to over $62 million in assets and is available for purchase at Fidelity, Schwab, Pershing, and TD Ameritrade under the ticker symbol BCGDX.
The Fund utilizes its investment strategy in growing cash flow through what we believe is a niche universe of high quality, dividend-paying companies with sustainable business models and dividend policies. The primary objectives are to pay a stable and increasing dividend each quarter and deliver attractive long term capital appreciation to investors.

Lipper Leader Disclosure: As of 09/30/2017, Lipper ratings for Total Return reflect funds' historical total return performance relative to peers; Lipper ratings for Consistent Return reflect funds' historical risk-adjusted returns, adjusted for volatility, relative to peers; Lipper ratings for Preservation reflect funds' historical loss avoidance relative to other funds within the same asset class. Preservation ratings are relative, rather than absolute, measures and funds named Lipper Leaders for Preservation may still experience losses periodically; those losses may be larger for equity and mixed equity funds than for fixed income funds.
