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.
