CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingfisher Capital was named a Top Guns Manager by PSN/Informa Investment Services, one of the world's most robust asset manager databases. Kingfisher's Global Tactical strategy received the highest Five-Star and Six-Star Top Guns distinctions within the global equity peer group for the recent period ending June 30, 2010.
"We are proud to be recognized by Informa as a Top Guns manager," said Alex Miles, Chief Investment Officer of Kingfisher Capital. "We launched the strategy in 2004 because we were observing a world in flux, a world that would not likely continue to reward buy and hold, US-centric stock strategies as it had in the past. At Kingfisher, we try to look around the bend. We think many investors are under-allocated to assets with pricing power and geographic regions with emerging consumption growth."
Tactical investing is an emerging focus for family offices, investment consultants and other allocators of capital, as investors clamor for greater flexibility in participating in global markets and multiple asset classes through a single portfolio strategy. Kingfisher has one of the longest and most successful track records in this emerging investment style and may be an excellent fit for investors looking for a more flexible, global approach.
Since inception on June 30, 2004 through June 30, 2010, Kingfisher Global Tactical outperformed the MSCI World Net Index over 3 to 1 net of fees, generating an alpha of 3.21 and a beta of .81 versus the benchmark.
Also in 2010, the firm launched its Kingfisher Sustainability and Innovation portfolio,a first-of-its-kind growth strategy, which seeks to identify global investment opportunities consistent with its proprietary Gravity Investing™ approach. The strategy concentrates on emerging, global companies and technologies in the water, energy, healthcare, agriculture and food inflation, and infrastructure sectors. The firm has actively invested in this space for the last decade and is recognized as a thought leader in evaluating these global, gravitational trends.
