* The peer group of All-Cap Core Equity Managers was created using information collected through the PSN investment manager questionnaire. The returns used in determining the ranking do not reflect the deduction of investment management fees. In the event net of fee returns had been used, the rankings may have come out differently. The All-Cap Core Equity peer group includes domestic equity investment products for which managers responding to the PSN manager questionnaire selected "core" as the primary equity style and "All-Cap" or "no primary capitalization" as their primary capitalization range. REIT and convertible products are excluded. Mutual fund and commingled fund products are not included in the universe. The peer group of All-Cap Core Equity Managers who reported to the PSN database for consideration in the ten year ranking is comprised of 53 managers and 65 investment products. Investment products must have an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark (S&P 500 Index) for the latest ten year period and also standard deviation (measure of volatility) less than the style benchmark for the latest ten year period. At this point, the top ten performers for the latest 10 year period become to the PSN Top Guns of the Decade. "R-Squared" is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of an investment product's movements that can be explained by movements in the style benchmark. PSN database information is intended for use by qualified investment professionals. Please consult with an investment professional before making any investment using content or implied content from the "Top Guns of the Decade" ranking.
