New York (HedgeCo.Net) – Hedge fund investor Neuberger Berman Group’s Mid Cap Growth Fund has exceeded $1 billion in assets under management following investor inflows and investment gains (as of February 21, 2014) since January 31, 2003.
The Fund’s two share classes with 10-year track records – Trust Class and Investor Class – both rank in the top third of the mid cap growth fund category for the 10 years annualized through February 28, 2014, according to fund tracker Morningstar Inc. The Trust Class and Investor Class also have both outperformed their benchmark, the Russell Midcap Growth Index, for the 10 years annualized through February 28, 2014.
Led by veteran manager Kenneth J. Turek, CFA, his team of analysts seek to identify businesses with potential catalysts for positive market revaluation.
“While we don’t anticipate a repeat of 2013’s outsized returns this year, we believe that valuations remain generally reasonable and even attractive for various mid cap segments,” Turek said. “We remain cautiously optimistic about the market and expect 2014 to be a constructive environment for mid cap growth stocks, but one more closely tied to underlying fundamentals, growth rates and a company’s ability to deliver positive differentiation.”
