Capital Counsel Awarded Top Guns Designation for the 2nd Quarter of 2020 by Informa Financial Intelligence

New York, NY August 19, 2020— Capital Counsel LLC, an independent investment adviser based in New York City, has been awarded a Top Guns designation by Informa Investment Solutions’ PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers.

“We are pleased to accept Informa’s Top Gun designation, which we think correctly assesses the comparative returns achieved by our investment managers,” says F Randall Smith, the firm’s Founder who has worked on the firm’s singular investment strategy represented by the Belle Meade Associates composite for the past three decades.

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.

Capital Counsel was awarded four, five, and six stars for achieving top 10 returns among its peers for the firm’s Belle Meade Associates composite. Belle Meade provides an accurate representation of the results of our disciplined investment strategy, which we implement across the $1.9 billion in assets under our management.

:  Capital Counsel’s Belle Meade Associates Composite earned four stars as it had an r-squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Moreover, returns exceeded the appropriate style benchmark for the three latest three-year rolling periods. The top ten performers in their respective fund categories for the latest three-year period then become the 4 Star Top Guns.

: Capital Counsel’s Belle Meade Associates Composite earned five stars as it 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 returns for the latest three-year period then become the 5 Star Top Guns.
