Calamos Named Best Overall Fund Group

Calamos’ outstanding investment performance across a breadth of investment strategies has been recognized by the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards, which today named Calamos Investments the US 2022 Best Overall Small Fund Family Over Three Years.

Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards

Active risk management serves investors best—such was the bedrock belief of Founder, Chairman and Global Chief Investment Officer John P. Calamos, Sr. in founding the firm more than 40 years ago. The Refinitiv Lipper award both “underscores the importance of this founding principle and the breadth of our investment talent,” says Calamos President and Chief Executive Officer John Koudounis.

“We are honored by this recognition,” says Calamos. “Throughout the market cycles, risk management has always been the cornerstone of our approach. This award recognizes consistent outperformance across multiple funds and is a testament to the consistency of our investment philosophy.”

Granted annually, Refinitiv Lipper asset class group awards are given to the best large and small groups separately. Small fund family groups need to have at least three equity, three bond and three mixed-asset portfolios. An overall group award is given to the group with the lowest average decile ranking of its respective asset class results based on the methodology described above. In cases of identical results, the lower average percentile rank determines the winner. No asset class and/or overall group awards are handed out if there are less than three competing companies.

With more than 30 years of history and a reach that extends more than 17 countries, the Refinitiv Lipper Awards are widely respected for their objective, quantitative criteria. The foundation of this prestigious award is the storied organization’s fund data and proprietary methodology.
