S&P Capital IQ announced this week that The Cook & Bynum Fund (NYSE: COBYX) is a finalist for its annual U.S. Mutual Fund Excellence Awards. The Fund was selected for the ‘New and Notable’ category, which recognizes standout mutual funds younger than three years old.
“We are honored that the Fund was nominated alongside offerings from the largest mutual fund complexes in our industry,” said Dowe Bynum, who is co-portfolio manager of the Fund with Richard Cook, “and we are heartened that industry experts recognize that our philosophy of concentrating capital in a few undervalued businesses around the world has something to offer investors.”
“Our approach, which has remained constant since the inception of Cook & Bynum Capital Management ten years ago, is unusual in its broad mandate,” added Mr. Cook. “We are not limited to investing in businesses that have particular market capitalizations, operate in certain industries, or are headquartered in specific geographic locations; rather, we invest wherever we find attractive opportunities. We are privileged to have partners who value this unique offering in a crowded world of investment options.”
