Ratings reflect fee waivers in effect; in their absence, ratings may have been lower. The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) 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 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 three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. The RMB Mendon Financial Services Fund Class A was rated as of 9/30/18 against the following number of U.S. domiciled financial funds over the following time periods: 96 funds in the last three years, 91 funds in the last 5 years, and 70 funds in the last 10 years. With respect to these financial funds, the RMB Mendon Financial Services Fund Class A received a Morningstar rating of 5, 5, and 5 stars for the 3, 5, and 10 year periods, respectively. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

PHILOSOPHY

Investment Philosophy

The RMB Mendon Financial Services Fund seeks capital appreciation. The Fund pursues its goal by investing at least 80% of its net assets (including borrowing, if any) in stocks of U.S. companies in the financial services sector. It may invest in companies of any size, but, under normal conditions, the fund invests primarily in small-capitalization stocks. Under normal conditions, the Fund intends to remain fully invested with only minimal investments in cash, short-term debt instruments, or money market funds.

Investment Approach

  • Seek companies with strong management, sound financial practices, and a defensible business niche
  • Focus on firms with sustainable growth in earnings, revenue, and cash flow
  • Identify undervalued equities that are temporarily distressed and have M&A potential
