Five Nationwide mutual funds receive awards from Investor’s Business Daily

Nationwide Investment Management Group’s portfolio of mutual fund offerings continues to shine among the best and brightest in the industry. Five Nationwide mutual funds were recognized in the seventh annual Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) Best Mutual Funds 2022 Awards in four categories:

  • Best U.S. Diversified Mutual Funds:
    • Nationwide BNY Mellon Dynamic US Core Fund (R6 share class)
  • Best Large-Cap Stock Funds:
    • Nationwide BNY Mellon Dynamic US Core Fund (R6 share class)
  • Best International Stock Funds:
    • Nationwide Global Sustainable Equity (R6 share class)
  • Best U.S. Taxable Funds:
    • Nationwide Core Plus Bond Fund (R6 share class)
    • Nationwide Bond Fund (Institutional Service share class)
    • Nationwide Loomis Core Bond (Institutional Service share class)

IBD’s data-driven list showcases a variety of top-performing mutual funds across the major categories that investors consider for broad market exposure or more narrow objectives.

To select its award winners, IBD reviews all funds in the Morningstar mutual fund universe that are at least 10 years old and then determines which funds topped their benchmark index in four time frames – the latest year and the three-, five- and 10-year periods that ended December 31. Funds are ranked according to their 10-year performance. This year, across the industry 677 funds out of 3,673– 18% of all funds at least 10-years-old – beat their respective benchmarks across the four periods evaluated.

The IBD awards come quickly off the heels of additional recognition for two of these funds. Earlier this month the Nationwide Global Sustainable Equity Fund and Nationwide BNY Mellon Dynamic US Core Fund were also recognized with Lipper Awards.

“Both the IBD and Lipper awards are a result of Nationwide’s goal and dedication to providing best-in-class solutions to help investors, financial professionals and professional buyers achieve their desired outcomes,” said Mike Spangler, leader of the Nationwide Financial Investment Management Group.
