Top 20 Female Portfolio Managers in America 2019

The Buffalo Funds is pleased to announce Nicole Kornitzer, CFA, was included in Citywire’s annual list of the top 20 female portfolio managers in the United States.

CityWire recently completed an analysis of 16,000 portfolio managers around the world and created a ranking of the top 20 female portfolio managers in the United States. Managers on the list are ranked by risk-adjusted returns of their fund portfolio over the past three years. To make the cut, they must also have top-quartile absolute returns in their particular investment disciplines over that period.

Nicole Kornitzer was included in the list for the second consecutive time – one of only seven women to accomplish the feat. “The fact there are seven of the same names in the 2019 and 2018 lists undoubtedly speaks to these investors’ skills and consistency, but it also reflects the fact that the strategies that worked three years ago – for example, long risk, growth equities and corporate bonds – are still working today,” said Frank Talbot, Head of Investment Research at Citywire.

Nicole, who was ranked #15, has co-managed the Buffalo International Fund since 2009. She also appeared in the Top 20 ranking in 2016.

“We believe Nicole’s inclusion on the Citywire top manager list is a strong testament to the quality of fund managers we have on staff, and we are proud of Nicole’s accomplishments,“ said Clay Brethour, CFA, Buffalo Funds President.

The Buffalo International Fund management team of Nicole Kornitzer and Bill Kornitzer, CFA, (manager since Fund’s inception) consistently apply the Buffalo Funds’ top-down, trend-based analysis, searching for companies that appear poised to benefit from long-term secular growth trends. Thorough country analysis, with an overlay of macro and financial country-specific data, and rigorous bottom-up stock selection help determine investment allocations. Ultimately, stocks are selected based on deep, fundamental research and strict valuation guidelines.

US News & World Report: Best Mutual Funds

Overview

U.S. News & World Report recognized the Buffalo International Fund in their recent “Best Mutual Funds” fund analysis for the period ending July 31, 2019.

The Buffalo International Fund (NASDAQ: BUFIX) ranked #2 out of 470 Foreign Large Growth funds based on the overall equal weightings of ratings from 5 data sources – Morningstar, Lipper, Zacks, CFRA S&P, TheStreet.

Management Team:

Current U.S. News ranking and additional information can be found here https://money.usnews.com/funds/mutual-funds/foreign-large-growth/buffalo-international-fund/bufix . The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics. While the U.S. News Mutual Fund Score combines all 5 equally weighted category scores to achieve its weighting, Lipper intends its measures to be used as individual assessments of a fund’s ability to meet specific goals, rather than as a cumulative measure of fund quality. Lipper rankings are comprised of five unique measures (Total Return, Consistent Return, Preservation, Expense, and Tax Efficiency), each with a 1-to-5 score, ranking each fund against its peers. The highest 20% of funds in each peer group are named Lipper Leaders, the next 20% receive a rating of 4, the middle 20% are rated 3, the next 20% are rated 2, and the lowest 20% are rated 1. The overall calculation is based on an equal-weighted average of percentile ranks for each measure over 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods (if applicable). Lipper Ratings for Total Return reflect funds’ historical total return performance relative to peers. Lipper Ratings for Consistent Return reflect funds’ historical risk-adjusted returns, relative to peers. Lipper Ratings for Preservation reflect funds’ historical loss avoidance relative to other funds within the same asset class. Lipper Ratings for Tax Efficiency reflect funds’ historical success in postponing taxable distributions relative to peers. Lipper Ratings for Expense reflect funds’ expense minimization relative to peers with similar load structures. The Zacks Mutual Fund Rank ranks funds on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being a Strong Buy and 5 being a Strong Sell. Each quarter, Zacks updates their Mutual Fund Rank by evaluating the average Zacks Rank for the stocks owned by the fund and blending this with other criteria their studies show is beneficial in finding funds that will outperform in the future. In general, the higher the average Zacks Rank for the stocks in the fund, then the higher the Zacks Mutual Fund Rank. TheStreet.com Ratings Investment Ratings for Funds condense the available fund performance and risk data into a single composite opinion of each fund’s risk-adjusted performance. “A (Buy) Excellent” rating means the fund has an excellent track record of maximizing performance while minimizing risk, thus delivering the best possible combination of total return on investment and reduced volatility. “B (Buy) Good” rating means the fund has a good track record of balancing performance with risk. “C (Hold) Fair” rating ratings means the fund has a track record which is about average. “D (Sell) Weak” rating means the fund has underperformed the universe of other funds given the level of risk in its underlying investments, resulting in a weak risk-adjusted performance. “E (Sell) Very Weak” rating means the fund has significantly underperformed most other funds given the level of risk in its underlying investments, resulting in a very weak risk-adjusted performance. The plus sign (+) is an indication that the fund is in the top third of its letter grade. The minus sign (-) is an indication that the fund is in the bottom third of its letter grade. “U Unrated” rating means the fund does not have sufficient history to make a reliable assessment of its risk-adjusted performance. The CFRA Rankings range from five-star (highest) to one-star (lowest) and follow a normalized distribution curve, based upon the fund’s rank in its Category. Top 10% receive 5 stars, next 20% receive 4 stars, middle 40% receive 3 stars, next 20% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Rankings are refreshed on a weekly basis to incorporate the latest inputs from the holdings-based analysis and the latest relative performance review. 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 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics. The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-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 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all 3 rating periods. ©2019 Morningstar, Inc.
