We’re proud to announce that our Dana Large Cap Equity Fund - Investor share class (DLCEX) hit its 10-year track record on March 1st, 2020. The Fund has returned 218.38%, an annualized return of 12.28% over this period.1

10 years ago, we chartered a new course to serve investors with a mutual fund offering. In these volatile times, we are proud to reflect on our accomplishments this past decade and pleased to have generated such strong positive performance for our fund shareholders. We believe in today’s current environment it is more important than ever to stay focused on the long-term goals.” Mark Mirsberger, CPA, Chief Executive Officer

The Dana Large Cap Equity Fund seeks to provide long-term appreciation of shareholders’ capital across various market cycles with lower risk than the S&P 500 Index, through a disciplined risk-controlled, relative value investment process. The Fund primarily invests in large-capitalization stocks that trade at a discount to the market with what the Adviser believes to be above-average future growth potential for earnings and dividends. The team utilizes a hybrid investment process of quantitative modeling and fundamental research to select securities for the portfolio. The portfolio is managed sector-neutral to the S&P 500 Index with the intention of specifically adding alpha through stock selection. This strategy has been used by Dana Investment Advisors in institutional products since 1999.
