04 Aug, 2021, 08:30 ET
NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanaka Capital Management today announced that according to Refinitiv Lipper, the TANAKA Growth Fund (TGFRX) was ranked #1 in its Multicap Core category of mutual funds for the year to date through June 30, 2021. The Fund's total return was 42.2%. This compared with the Fund's benchmark Wilshire 2500 Growth index total return of 14.0% year to date and 15.3% for the S&P 500 for the same period. The Fund has maintained its #1 ranking for the last 1 ½ years through June 30th, up 114.6% vs. gains of 51.7% and 36.5% for the Wilshire 2500 Growth Index and the S&P 500.
"We were fortunate to use new fund inflows early in the year to improve performance and achieve a better balance in the sources of our growth between Tech, Biotech and our other Platform Growth companies and more pro-cyclical growers such as Financials, Consumer Staples and Capital Goods companies." said Graham Tanaka, President of Tanaka Capital Management. "Going forward, we will be using new communication tools which we have utilized successfully over the last year to help speed up discovery by other investors of some of our most under-appreciated and undiscovered stocks in our portfolio."
"Our active management approach to investing continues to deliver superior returns to that of the Fund's benchmark and most major indices in 2021 by leveraging our keen ability to find the top companies exhibiting disruptive innovation and market success," said Benjamin Bratt, Vice President of Tanaka Capital Management as well as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Compliance Officer of the TANAKA Growth Fund. "We believe that bottoms-up stock selection and finding undervalued companies early will be of increasing importance with the economic recovery transitioning from early to mid-cycle and our expectation for more modest stock market returns in the coming years."
