ATLANTA, Georgia, September 8, 2021 — We are excited to announce that on the 7th anniversary of the Blue Current Global Dividend Growth Fund (BCGDX), Morningstar has awarded the fund a 4-Star Rating for the 3- and 5-year performance periods. The fund was rated against 159 funds (for the three-year period) and 146 funds (for the fiveyear period) in the World Large Stock Value category based on total return as of August 31, 2021.
Speaking about the rating, Dennis Sabo, CFA, lead portfolio manager for the Blue Current Global Dividend Fund, said, “we are excited to be recognized by Morningstar and we believe the rating validates our strategy of investing in high-quality businesses committed to rewarding shareholders through dividend growth. With low interest rates and accelerating inflation around the globe, we believe rising dividends offers an inflation hedge for individuals looking to generate greater amounts of cash flow”.

The Morningstar Rating for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
