The Pender Small Cap Opportunities Fund received the 2015 Lipper Fund Award for Best Canadian Small/Mid Cap Equity Fund over both three and five year performance periods. The Lipper awards recognize consistent strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers.

“This award belongs to David Barr and the outstanding investment team at Pender. David is passionate about investing. His focus on business fundamentals and his private equity background have led him to many investment opportunities that were overlooked by others,” said Kelly Edmison, President of Pender. “This prestigious award is independent recognition of what we, and our investors, have known all along and we thank them for their continued support.”

Pender Wins Lipper Fund Award 2015 - David Barr and Kelly EdmisonThe Fund was launched on June 1, 2009. It is an opportunistic, concentrated portfolio of undervalued small and microcap companies predominantly in Canada. The Manager looks for out-of-favour market-leading businesses with strong underlying economics and management teams. Taking advantage of market inefficiencies, these businesses are purchased with a margin-of-safety, or discount to intrinsic value, to minimise downside risk and provide a longer runway to potential capital appreciation. Portfolio holdings include special situations and M & A candidates.
