Funds maintain top S&P Rating
- Date: 20/08/2014
Thomas Miller Investment (Isle of Man) Limited, a member of the 129 year old Thomas Miller Group of companies, is delighted to announce that the TMI Sterling Liquidity Sub-Fund and the TMI US Dollar Liquidity Sub-Fund have both maintained their Standard & Poor’s (S&P) ‘AAAf’ fund credit quality rating and ‘S1+’ fund volatility rating following the annual review of the funds by S&P.
The funds "AAAf" rating signifies the strong protection that the fund's portfolio holdings provide against losses from credit defaults, and is the highest possible credit rating assigned by S&P. The funds "S1+" volatility rating recognises that the fund demonstrates low sensitivity to changing market conditions, and it is the lowest possible volatility rating S&P can assign.
Carolyn Gelling, Head of Collective Investment Funds, Thomas Miller Investment says:
“The fact that these funds have maintained top ratings and first quartile performance against a continued testing backdrop for cash and liquidity investments is testament to the continued work of strong investment research and a credit committee process that provides clients with a diversified and risk adjusted return profile on their investments.”
