Cardinal Capital Ranks in the Top One Percentile during the 3rd Quarter of 2008
RALEIGH, NC - Cardinal Capital Management finished the third quarter ranked in the top one percentile of all U.S. equity large cap core managers. The measurement for the quarter ending September 30, 2008 is by the PSN database, the nation’s largest separately managed assessment of more than 2,000 investment management firms and more than 10,000 investment products.
Even in these tumultuous markets, Cardinal Capital Management's U.S. composite finished the third quarter in positive territory: + 1.29%.
“Our U.S. and Non-U.S. equity portfolio composites outperformed the Standard and Poor's 500 and Morgan Stanley's EAFE (Europe, Australasia and Far East) indices respectively during the third quarter,” said Glenn Andrews, President of Cardinal Capital Management.
“These two indices are the benchmarks by which we measure our performance. The results are consistent with our objective to exceed the benchmark equity index return net of fees at significantly reduced risk for our clients.”
Mr. Andrews explained that Cardinal Capital Management pursues a value oriented investment approach that “identifies solid companies with lower volatilities. As a result, our portfolios tend to perform well in turbulent markets such as these.”
For over sixteen years Cardinal Capital Management has created diversified portfolios that have outperformed the market while mitigating risk; through periods of market growth and turbulent downturns.
