SAN ANTONIO, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- South Texas Money Management announced today that for the three-year period ended March 31, 2016, it has been recognized with Top Guns status by Informa Investment Solutions' PSN manager database. STMM was recognized in the Top Guns category, 'Bull and Bear Masters.'
"I am proud of our achievements at South Texas Money Management in limiting downside risk for our clients," said Jeanie Wyatt, CFA®, CEO and Chief Investment Officer at South Texas Money Management, Ltd. "The 'Bull and Bear Masters' category recognition among the Top Guns, which measures upside and downside capture over a three-year period, is confirmation that our deep bench of financial professionals (including 8 CFAs® charterholders, 5 CFP® professionals, 7 MBAs, 2 JDs and one Ph.D.) and in depth research and strategic diversification are producing longer-term risk adjusted performance."
Wyatt continued, "We manage our stock portfolios with disciplined diversification in order to achieve these results. All investors need to understand that wealth is accumulated by a long- term strategy where downside risk is mitigated. We invest in individual stocks, both value and growth, large, mid, and small cap stocks of both US and International companies, with a strong emphasis on sector control."
Utilizing a proprietary blend of Informa Investment Solutions' top priority performance screens, PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary star categories in over 50 universes.
For Bull and Bear Masters, products must have an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for a three-year period. Moreover, products must have an upside market capture over 100 and a downside market capture less than 100 relative to the style benchmark. The top ten ratios of Upside Capture Ratio over Downside Capture Ratio become the PSN Bull and Bear Masters.
"This is what our investment process is designed to do, and it is always gratifying to be recognized by PSN as a Top Gun," said Dr. Jim Kee, Ph.D., President and Chief Economist at South Texas Money Management, Ltd.
"The PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary star categories in over 50 universes," said Leno Toich, Managing Director of Informa Investment Solutions. "This data-driven award recognizes elite performers on the leading investment manager database in North America and provides high-level exposure to hundreds of institutional clients and investors across our platform."
