Martin Investment Management received six recognitions in the Lipper MarketPlace of the Thomson Reuters Company for periods ending September 30, 2012. The firm’s U.S. Growth with a Value Discipline strategy is ranked one of the top twenty money managers for 10 years of performance returns. The Growth with a Value Discipline strategy is in third place in the group of the top twenty money managers for 5 years. Lipper MarketPlace also places this strategy twentieth of the forty top money managers for 3 years ending September 30, 2012 and thirty-second out of the top forty for the quarter ending September 30, 2012. Martin Investment Management, LLC’s Core Equity Strategy is ranked in fifth place out of the top twenty money managers for the 10 years ending September 30, 2012. The Lipper MarketPlace also places the firm’s global Eco-Investing strategy in the top forty money managers for the year ending September 30, 2012.

Tortue Capital, Martin Investment Management, LLC’s international strategy, received a PSN “Top Gun” ranking for the third quarter ending September 30, 2012 in their EAFE (international, developed markets) category. The 3 Stars and Bull/Bear designations in the EAFE Universe for the period ending September 30, 2012 places this strategy in the top ten performers within its peer group of the Informa Investment Solutions’s PSN database.

In addition, earlier this year Informa Investment Solutions’s PSN database named Martin Investment Management, LLC a “Top Guns Manager of the Decade” for its “Best Ideas” Growth With A Value Discipline,” for the period ending December 31, 2011 in their Large Growth Universe. For the ten-year period the firm is one of the top ten performing managers in the Large Growth Universe category and was recognized out of 252 firms and 347 products/strategies.

In acknowledging these achievements, Sandra Martin, Managing Director, commented, “We are very pleased to have been able to perform so well in several of our strategies over different investment horizons.” Patrick Martin said, “Over time an investment strategy that focuses on preservation of capital in the market downturns and keeps up well in the more rationally priced upturns should win out over competing strategies with less emphasis on quality and valuation.” Mary Ellen Zellerbach added, “We are very honored by this recognition that we have received. We appreciate the support and confidence of both our new and existing clients.”

It should be noted that these rankings and past performance are not indicative of future performance.
