Camelot Event-Driven Fund Celebrates 20-Year Anniversary

MAUMEE, Ohio, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Camelot Event-Driven Advisors is proud to announce the 20-year anniversary of the Camelot Event-Driven Fund (“the Fund”), tickers EVDAX, EVDIX.

The Fund was launched on November 21, 2003, and is co-managed by portfolio managers Thomas Kirchner and Paul Hoffmeister. Since its inception, the Fund carries an overall 5-star rating out of 42 funds in the Morningstar Event-Driven Category, based on risk-adjusted returns, and uses a weighted average of the Fund’s three-, five-, and 10-year ratings respectively, 5 stars, 5 stars, and 5 stars, among 42, 40, and 28 funds, as of September 30, 2023.

Morningstar is not the only entity which recognizes the Fund for the category leader that it is. This year, Refinitiv Lipper named the Fund the Best Fund over 3 Years (and 5 Years!) among other Alternative Event-Driven Funds. This award was based on risk-adjusted performance. The category includes 16 funds (3 years) and 15 funds (5 years), as of September 30, 2023.

“Although 20 years is considered a significant milestone for a mutual fund in and of itself, we are most proud of having always put our weight on the work,” said Mr. Kirchner.

“It’s what we have accomplished within those two decades that gives us reason to celebrate,” said Mr. Hoffmeister. “With our 20-year track record of outperformance as a foundation, we are steadfast in fixing our eyes on the future.”

As a multi-strategy event-driven fund, this Fund has the flexibility to move with the market. To learn more and find out what this Fund might do over the next 20 years, visit www.cameloteventdrivenfund.com or call 800-869-1679.

The Morningstar Rating for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for investment funds with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. 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 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
