The fund is up 22% during the past year and is ranked in the top 18% of its category by Morningstar during the past five years, returning 10.9% annually over the period. That performance has helped drive roughly $4.3 billion in assets under management.

Holdings in the financial services sector account for 20% of this portfolio. Current top holdings include: Republic Services (RSG), Northern Trust (NTRS), Imperial Oil (IMO), ADT (ADT) and Great Plains Energy (GXP).

ACMVX is a no-load fund that charges 1% in expenses, or $100 for every $10,000 invested.
