The Dearborn | Third River Focus Value strategy has been named to the 2-star, 3-star and 4-star top ten rankings in the small-mid value universe for periods ended 12/31/13 by Informa, one of the largest investment management databases. The strategy ranked #1 (out of 65) for the 1-year period, #4 (out of 65) for the 3-year period, and #3 (out of 65) for the three latest 3-year rolling periods all ending 12/31/13. The strategy ranked #4 (out of 65) for the 5-year annualized return.

“The strategy’s 5-year performance is something we would like to build on,” stated Portfolio Manager Kevin E. Silverman, CFA. “Our equity team of Mike Valencia, Jason Ryder and Blake Harper, and our approach to identifying undervalued stocks have been consistent for nearly a decade. Our holdings typically include undiscovered or underfollowed companies that are too small to attract much attention from Wall Street, allowing us to develop proprietary knowledge and an investment edge. This is the secret sauce that we believe drives alpha,” said Mr. Silverman, who brings over 30 years of equity experience to the strategy.
