Cap Group, Fidelity, and Pimco Break Out the Champagne


Capital Group's American Funds may have been the biggest mutual fund winner in New York City last night.

At Thomson Reuters' Lipper's U.S. Fund Awards 2015 dinner at the Mandarin Oriental near Columbus Circle, Cap Group's mutual funds took home 19 individual awards, more than any other mutual fund shop. And the Los Angeles-based advisor-sold mutual fund titan was also recognized as the "Best Mixed Assets Group - Large", one of only seven group awards of the night.

About 350 fundsters turned up for the classy dinner and awards show, complete with open bar and a beautiful view of Central Park. The reception, dinner, and awards ceremony was preceded by the afternoon Lipper Alpha Forum, also at the Mandarin Oriental.

Fidelity's funds won 18 individual awards, the second-biggest talley, and post-Gross Pimco ranked third with 15 fund wins. TIAA-CREF won the "best fund group overall - large" award, and though its funds didn't land any individual awards, its new Nuveen subsidiary won 10 individual awards.

Other group winners included:

  • MassMutual Retirement Services won "best fund group overall - small";

  • Harris Associates' Oakmark funds won "best equity fund group - large", and also won an individual fund award;

  • Hotchkis & Wiley Capital Management won "best equity fund group - small", and also won six individual fund awards;

  • Lord Abbett won "best fixed income fund group - large", and also won three individual fund awards;

  • Guggenheim won "best fixed income fund group - small", and also won two individual fund awards (including one under its Rydex brand); and

  • Thrivent won "best mixed assets group - small".
