Dunham & Associates Investment Counsel, Inc. (DAIC) received the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award for Best Real Estate Fund over the 3 year period. (Ending December 31, 2020.)
“Winning this award signals to our clients the dedication to fairness and accountability that was envisioned by this firm 36 years ago,” said Jeffrey Dunham, Chairman/CEO of DAIC. “At Dunham, we believe that our fund managers should be paid fees based on their ability to outperform their benchmark. Our Analyst department, led by Ryan Dykmans for 16 years, is constantly monitoring and seeking fund managers that best represent Dunham’s dedication to accountability. Refinitiv Lipper is well respected within our industry and it is an honor to receive such a prestigious award for the performance of our Dunham Real Estate Stock Fund.”
The portfolio managers of the fund are Burland B. East III, CFA, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, and Creede Murphy, Chief Operating Officer.
Burland and Creede shared their advice for maintaining portfolio performance in the volatile market of 2020. “The depth of research we do on our investments gives us a rock to stand on in the storm,” said Burland and Creede. “Building a relationship with management, visiting the real estate assets, and knowing the real drivers of long-term value for our companies and tenants helps us be unfazed by ‘noise and panic’ in the market and to trust our research. With this foundation, we can remain focused on the strategy implemented and keep watch for new developments.”
Dunham congratulates Ryan Dykmans and the Dunham analyst team, AACA, and portfolio managers Burland B. East III and Creede Murphy on the award.
