Commerce Investment Advisors, Inc. Recognized With Lipper Fund Award

Lipper, a leading provider of mutual fund information, analytical tools and commentary has given Commerce Investment Advisors, Inc. its highest rating in the Best Fixed Income Small Fund Group. Commerce Investment Advisors took the top spot out of 61 qualified companies in this category receiving an asset class group award 1. Scott Colbert, director of Fixed Income Management, The Commerce Trust Company and Commerce Investment Advisors, Inc., accepted the honor last night (Thursday, March 14) at an awards ceremony in New York.

Fund groups with at least five equity, five bond, or three mixed-asset portfolios in the respective asset classes are eligible for a group award. The lowest average decile rank of the three years’ Consistent Return measure of the eligible funds per asset class and group determines the asset class group award winner of the three-year period. The small fund group category must have at least three distinct portfolios in one of the asset classes – equity, bond, or mixed-asset. The threshold for determining large and small companies is $43.5 billion as of 10/31/12.

“This recognition provides further evidence that Commerce Investment Advisors and its Fixed Income group continue to deliver strong nominal and relative performance,” Colbert said upon accepting the award. “I attribute our success over time to our focus on maximizing risk-adjusted return and our position as a money management arm within a high-quality bank. I believe it’s our credit work and the ability to identify value in various fixed income sectors that really distinguishes us on a relative basis over this time period and that has allowed us to work our way into the top percentile rankings.”

Important information

Investments in the Funds carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Special risks may be associated with investments outside the United States, especially in emerging markets, including currency fluctuations, illiquidity and volatility. Investments in small capitalization companies may increase the risk of greater price fluctuations. Funds investing in bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds. The principal value of bonds will fluctuate relative to changes in interest rates, decreasing when interest rates rise. Investments in the Funds are not FDIC insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity.
