Top Guns Awards for Q4’23

Blueprint Investment Partners, an asset manager and pioneer in the creation of systematic, process-driven, and transparent investment strategies for financial advisors, has been awarded a PSN Top Guns distinction by Zephyr, a top resource for investment professionals for nearly four decades. The Top Guns ranking recognizes the Blueprint Growth Strategy for its strong performance during the quarter ending December 31, 2023.

“This award speaks to the power of systematic investing,” says Blueprint CEO and Co-Founder Jon Robinson. “The Growth Strategy is our flagship solution for financial advisors who seek a risk-managed, global asset allocation portfolio that can dynamically adjust asset class exposures in response to market changes. It’s gratifying to have the strategy’s performance recognized by Zephyr, in addition to the feedback we receive from advisors about how our transparent, straightforward investing rules are instrumental in reducing emotional decision-making and keeping clients anchored to their financial plans.”

Through a combination of proprietary performance screens, PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary categories in more than 75 universes. This is a well-respected quarterly ranking and is widely used by financial advisors and institutional asset managers.

“As the needs and viewpoints of investors are becoming more diverse, investment advisors must incorporate strategies capable of being customized to their client’s goals. SMA strategies are becoming increasingly important as an efficient tool to provide custom investment solutions for portfolios of all sizes and have seen asset growth of over 19% in 2023. It is also increasingly important for managers to Identify quality SMA strategies. Zephyr PSN has been helping advisors find quality products for 40 years, and achieving Top Gun status confirms that Blueprint Investment Partners has outperformed their peers in a meaningful way,” says Nick Williams, Product Manager of PSN at Zephyr.*
