"We are honored to again have numerous funds recognized by Refinitiv Lipper," said David Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Victory Capital. "We believe these well-respected industry awards speak to the depth and quality of our offerings across our Investment Franchises and our unwavering commitment to consistently deliver excellent, long-term risk-adjusted returns to our fund shareholders."
The Victory Floating Rate Fund seeks to provide a high level of current income through investments primarily in floating rate loans and other floating rate investments. Most of the Fund’s investments will typically be below investment grade. The investment team considers several factors such as the issuer’s credit quality, management, capital structure, leverage, operational performance, and the business outlook for the industry of the issuer.
The USAA Ultra Short-Term Bond Fund seeks to provide high current income consistent with preservation of principal. The Fund's principal investment strategy is to normally invest at least 80% of the fund's assets in investment-grade debt securities that have a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity of 18 months or less. The Fund invests primarily in U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities including obligations of U.S., state, and local governments, their agencies and instrumentalities; mortgage- and asset-backed securities; corporate debt securities; and repurchase agreements.
The USAA Nasdaq-100 Index Fund seeks to match the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Nasdaq-100 Index. The Nasdaq-100 Index represents 100 of the largest nonfinancial stocks traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets in common stocks of companies composing the Index and in roughly the same proportions as their weightings in the Index. Consistent with the Index, the Fund may be focused in the technology sector.
The Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards, granted annually, highlight funds and fund companies that have excelled in delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers. The Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards are based on the Lipper Leader for Consistent Return rating, which is a risk-adjusted performance measure calculated over 36, 60 and 120 months. The fund with the highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return (Effective Return) value in each eligible classification wins the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award.
