The Small Cap strategy was also honored with the PSN Bull and Bear Masters category.

“This is an important achievement for White Pine Capital’s clients,” noted Dennis Senneseth, a founding Partner of the firm. “Our 21-year track record managing small cap portfolios has helped our clients meet or exceed their objectives over a variety of market cycles. We are pleased to be ranked at the top of our PSN peer group for the trailing 1-, 3-, and 5-year periods.”

The top ten ratios of Upside Capture Ratio over Downside Capture Ratio become the PSN Bull & Bear Masters.


Tim Madey and Mike Wallace, lead managers on the Small Cap product added: “Our Small Cap strategy focuses on mispriced securities of smaller, less followed companies undergoing a business model transition. Experienced management teams and strong capital structures lengthen our investment horizon to capture those favorable returns over longer investment cycles. We’re pleased to have outperformed in both up and down markets”.
