“Over longer periods, and across differing market cycles, our rigorous investment process has led to solid results for investors. We prefer to judge performance across several years, as the majority of our investors have long-term goals and aspirations. We’re pleased to see that these rankings have continued to validate our process."– Henry J. Herrmann, Chairman and CEO of Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc., parent company to Ivy Funds
Barron’s rankings (published Feb. 6, 2016) are based on asset-weighted returns in five categories: domestic equity, world equity (including international and global portfolios), mixed asset (stocks and bonds), taxable bonds and tax exempt bonds. Rankings also take into account an individual fund’s performance within its Lipper peer group. Sales charges are not included in the calculation of returns, and the ranking period included time periods during which some funds’ returns were affected by expense reduction arrangements. For the 5-year period ended 12/31/15, Ivy Funds ranked 38 out of 58 firms. For the one-year period ended 12/31/15, Ivy Funds ranked 58 out of 67 firms.
Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and it is possible to lose money by investing. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
