The top ten information ratios for the latest five-year period then become the 6 Star Top Guns.

In the 5-star category, our Curran Core Growth Equity Strategy had an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Products are then selected which have a standard deviation for the five-year period equal or less than the median standard deviation for the peer group.

The peer groups were created using the information collected through the PSN investment manager questionnaire and uses only gross of fee returns.
