2015 Lipper Award Winner Global Equity Income Fund for 5-Year Period
Global Equity Income Fund, Institutional (SGISX)
Capstone Asset Management Company is pleased to announce that the Steward Global Equity Income Fund Institutional Class (SGISX) earned the 2015 Lipper Fund Award for Best Global Equity Income Fund.
The U.S. Lipper Fund Awards recognized the Fund on March 31, 2015 for delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance, relative to its peers, for the 5-year period. Chosen out of 66 others, the Fund achieved the highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return value over a single performance period in its classification.
The Fund seeks to provide income and long-term capital appreciation by employing a four-step process that combines dividend income style with relative risk-controlled portfolio construction and cultural values screening policies.
- Determine the universe of Global dividend paying stocks. Apply the cultural values screens to the universe and eliminate those companies not meeting the screening policies from consideration.
- Identify securities having dividend yields above their sector medians. Then those securities are screened for favorable dividend and earnings growth.
- A relative risk-controlled portfolio is constructed that attempts to match the characteristics of a targeted benchmark.
- A review of the portfolio securities with respect to their latest fundamental information is conducted. Any security that fails the review is removed and the portfolio construction is repeated until all holdings satisfy the review process.
