Auour Investments Named Top Guns Manager by Informa Investment Solutions

February 26, 2019: Auour Investments has been awarded a Top Guns designation by Informa Investment Solutions’ PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers. Four of the firm’s investments strategies were recognized for their 1 or 3-year performance for the period ending December 31, 2018.

“We are pleased, once again, to be recognized for our performance.  Our processes became more defensive at the beginning of 2018 and continued to signal a period of heightened uncertainty throughout the year” stated Joseph Hosler, managing principal of Auour.  The firm focuses on delivering ETF-based investment strategies that target full participation in good times while mitigating the downside during times of market duress.

Through a combination of Informa Investment Solutions’ proprietary performance screens, PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 50 universes. This is a well-respected quarterly ranking and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors. Informa Investment Solutions is part of Informa Financial Intelligence, a leading provider of critical decision-making solutions and custom services to financial institutions.
