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


Portfolio Characteristics

As of 06/30/2021

Turnover Ratio

Turnover Ratio or Turnover Rate is the percentage of a mutual fund or other portfolio's holdings that have been replaced in a 12-month period.


Weighted Average Market Cap

Weighted Average Market Capitalization refers to a type of stock market index construction that is based on the market capitalization of the index's constituent stocks; large companies would, therefore, account for a greater portion of an index than smaller stocks.


Active Share

Active Share is a measure of the percentage of stock holdings in a manager's portfolio that differs from the benchmark index.


Standard Deviation

Standard Deviation is a statistic that measures the dispersion of a dataset relative to its mean. The standard deviation is calculated as the square root of variance by determining each data point's deviation relative to the mean. If the data points are further from the mean, there is a higher deviation within the data set; thus, the more spread out the data, the higher the standard deviation.


Beta vs. Benchmark

Beta is a measure of a stock's volatility in relation to the overall market. If a stock moves less than the market, the stock's beta is less than 1.0. High-beta stocks are supposed to be riskier but provide higher return potential; low-beta stocks pose less risk but also lower returns.

RMB Mendon Financial Services Fund Materials




The Funds’ investment adviser, RMB Capital Management, LLC, has adopted a contractual expense limitation agreement for each Fund through April 30, 2022, reducing the applicable Fund’s operating expenses so that the Fund’s total return and yield is increased. This may be continued from year to year thereafter if agreed upon by all parties. In the absence of such waivers and/or reimbursements, the applicable Fund’s total return and yield would be lower.

All investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal. The RMB Mendon Financial Services Fund is a sector fund. These types of funds may be susceptible to factors affecting their industries, and the fund’s net asset values may fluctuate more than a fund that invests in a wider range of industries. Because this fund concentrates its investments in one sector of the economy (financial services), investors should consider the risk that the fund may experience greater volatility than funds that invest across several sectors.

Different classes of shares carry different fees and expenses. The RMB Mendon Financial Services Fund currently offers three classes (A, C and I shares). Class A has a maximum front-end sales charge of 5.0%, Class C has a maximum contingent deferred sales charge of 1.0%, and Class I has waived load with $100,000 minimum investment. Class A sales charges are waived for clients of investment intermediaries, or for those who purchase shares via no-transaction fee platforms.
