Quoting Management: Patrick Cunningham, Manning & Napier’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We delivered strong absolute and competitive relative investment results for our clients during the first quarter of 2013. Our focus on growth-oriented investments in the current slow economic growth environment has been a deliberate attempt to protect investors from reinvestment rate risk, or the risk of achieving low returns by reinvesting capital in lower growth stocks with relatively high dividend yields or lower yielding government-backed bonds, both historically considered “safe” investments. Our emphasis on companies with sustainable growth was rewarded in the first quarter.”
