Risk-Adjusted Performance Matters

Lipper Rankings Respected Industry-Wide

Lipper recognition is highly valued by financial professionals like you who have to make important investment decisions – and for good reason: The 2019 Lipper Fund Award winners are selected based on the highest risk-adjusted performance among funds within a given category. The calculation periods extend over 36, 60 and 120 months. The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return (Effective Return) value within each eligible classification determines the fund classification winner over three, five or 10 years. A high Lipper rating does not necessarily imply that a fund had the best total performance or that the fund achieved positive results for that period. Lipper Inc. is a major independent mutual fund tracking organization. Other share classes may have different performance characteristics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
