Calamos Evolving World Growth Fund Passes 5-year Anniversary, Earns 5-star Morningstar Rating

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Calamos Investments ®*, a global investment management firm, is pleased to announce the recent 5-year anniversary of the highly-rated Evolving World Growth Fund (CNWGX). The fund's load-waived A shares received an overall 5-star Morningstar rating as of August 31, 2013.

"In launching the fund, we wanted to give investors the opportunity to participate in the higher growth prospects of emerging economies but with a risk-managed approach based on the idea that where a company earns its revenue is more important than where it is domiciled," said John P. Calamos, Sr., CEO and Global Co-Chief Investment Officer. "Revenue mapping has proven to be an alpha generator for the fund, as it has delivered more than double the return of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index with 32% less volatility since inception. Indeed, our 'companies over countries' approach enables investors to make a core allocation to the emerging markets arena while maintaining the risk/reward profile of their total portfolio."

The strategy, available to U.S. institutional and retail investors since 2008, is a flexible, opportunistic approach allowing the portfolio to manage risk while seeking enhanced returns across regions, countries, market capitalization, sectors and security type.  A similar strategy is also available outside the United States in a UCITS structure.
