Institutional Investor’s US Investment Management Awards: As part of the awards process, Institutional Investor’s editorial and research teams analyze investment strategies based on factors such as 1-, 3- and 5-year performance, Sharpe ratio, information ratio, standard deviation, and upside market capture. Each category is analyzed based on the factors used by institutional investors in their own searches.

The award is based on returns and risk characteristics for Guggenheim Investments’ Multi Credit Fixed Income strategy.
Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its investment objectives or is suitable for all investors. Diversification does not ensure profit nor protect against loss. Every asset class is subject to various risks that affect their performance in different market cycles. Fixed income investments are subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk. Equity investments are subject to market risk or the risk of loss due to adverse company and industry news, or general economic decline. Alternative investments are subject to market risk, currency risk, foreign investment risks, liquidity risks, higher fees and expenses, regulatory restrictions, and volatility due to speculative trading and use of leverage.
