February 19, 2021— Altrius Capital Management has been awarded a PSN Manager of the Decade and Top Guns 6-star distinction by Informa Financial Intelligence’s PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers.


Congratulations to Altrius Capital Management for being recognized as a PSN Manager of the Decade and Top Gun for its Disciplined Alpha Dividend strategy in the All Cap Value universe,” said Ryan Nauman, Market Strategist at Informa Financial Intelligence’s Zephyr. “This highly esteemed designation allows us to recognize success, excellence and performance of leading investment managers each quarter.


Altrius' Chief Investment Strategist James Russo said "we are honored to receive the distinction which is a testament to our team's hard work and Altrius' disciplined investment process."

Through a combination of Informa Financial Intelligence’s proprietary performance screens, PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 50 universes. This is a well-respected quarterly ranking and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors. Informa Financial Intelligence is part of Informa plc, a leading provider of critical decision-making solutions and custom services to financial institutions.

Top Gun firms are awarded a rating ranging from one to six stars, with the number of stars representing continued performance over time. Altrius Capital's Disciplined Alpha Dividend strategy was named Manager of the Decade meaning our Disciplined Alpha Dividend strategy had an r-squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the latest 10-year period. Moreover, the strategy’s returns were greater than the style benchmark for the latest 10-year period and also standard deviation less than the style benchmark for the latest ten-year period. At this point, the top ten performers for the latest 10-year period become the PSN Top Guns Manager of the Decade.

Altrius Capital's Disciplined Alpha Dividend strategy was also awarded a Top Gun 6-Star rating, meaning our Disciplined Alpha Dividend strategy had an r-squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Moreover, the strategy’s returns exceeded the style benchmark for the three latest three-year rolling periods. 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 top ten information ratios for the latest five-year period then become the 6 Star Top Guns.
