TORONTO--()--Picton Mahoney Asset Management (Picton Mahoney) was recognized with three awards at the annual FundGrade A+® Awards across multiple categories. The FundGrade A+® Awards are given annually to investment funds and their managers who have shown consistent, outstanding, risk-adjusted performance through the year.

“The fact that three of our funds have been singled out for outstanding performance in a year characterized by major market headwinds demonstrates the value of alternative investment strategies,” said David Picton, President and CEO at Picton Mahoney. “We’ve been championing alternative strategies for almost 20 years and we know how challenging it is for advisors to help their clients navigate through market volatility, so we’re pleased to see that alternative strategies like market neutral and multi-asset investments are gaining greater recognition.”

About FundGrade

FundGrade A+® is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. The annual FundGrade A+® Awards are presented by Fundata Canada Inc. to recognize the “best of the best” among Canadian investment funds. The FundGrade A+® calculation is supplemental to the monthly FundGrade ratings and is calculated at the end of each calendar year. The FundGrade rating system evaluates funds based on their risk-adjusted performance, measured by Sharpe Ratio, Sortino Ratio, and Information Ratio. The score for each ratio is calculated individually, covering all time periods from 2 to 10 years. The scores are then weighted equally in calculating a monthly FundGrade. The top 10% of funds earn an A Grade; the next 20% of funds earn a B Grade; the next 40% of funds earn a C Grade; the next 20% of funds receive a D Grade; and the lowest 10% of funds receive an E Grade. To be eligible, a fund must have received a FundGrade rating every month in the previous year. The FundGrade A+® uses a GPA-style calculation, where each monthly FundGrade from “A” to “E” receives a score from 4 to 0, respectively. A fund’s average score for the year determines its GPA. Any fund with a GPA of 3.5 or greater is awarded a FundGrade A+® Award. For more information, see www.FundGradeAwards.com.
