SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) January 27, 2020
Counterpoint Mutual Funds, a quantitative, mutual fund provider specializing in defensive, diversifier strategies, announced that the Counterpoint Tactical Income Fund (CPITX) has received a five-year, five-star rating from Morningstar, Inc., a leading provider of independent investment research. Only the top 10% of funds in each category receive five stars.
“We are very pleased to receive the ‘5-Star’ 5-year Morningstar rating for the first five years after launching the Counterpoint Tactical Income Fund,” says Michael Krause, CFA, co-founder and co-portfolio manager of Counterpoint Mutual Funds.
Developed by Counterpoint Mutual Funds, the Counterpoint Tactical Income Fund (CPITX) launched Dec., 2014, and had $365.62 million in net portfolio assets as of Dec. 31, 2019. Using a quantitative, trend-following model, Counterpoint Tactical Income Fund seeks absolute returns via exposure to high-yield bond assets during favorable market environments and seeks a “risk-off” position in short-duration U.S. Treasuries during times of market stress. The fund gives investors a "diversifier" strategy to potentially improve portfolio performance by either boosting returns within a given risk budget, or by reducing portfolio draw-down risk without unduly sacrificing returns.
"This recognition highlights our team’s systematic and strategy-focused approach to investing to regularly deliver high-quality, risk-adjusted returns while largely avoiding volatility,” added Mr. Krause. “We would also like to thank the clients who showed confidence in our strategy from the very beginning.”

©2020 Morningstar. All Rights Reserved. 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. 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 Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. 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 three-, ﬁve-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
