Rydex

Rydex Parent Rating

Below Average

Rydex has a ways to go to become an industry-standard steward, resulting in a Below Average Parent Pillar rating.

A quality holding back Rydex from the top tier of stewards is its managers' limited personal investments in their respective products, which helps to align portfolio manager and shareholder interests. Currently, only 2% of the firm’s assets are covered by invested managers. Open-end and exchange-traded fund fees are a weakness at the firm, contributing negatively to the rating. On average, the firm charges fees on its funds that are in the second most-expensive quintile of category peers. With the current market environment of fee compression, this is cause for concern, as investors may flock to alternate asset managers over time to get a better deal. A sign of strength at Rydex is its longest-tenured management, which offers an average asset-weighted tenure of 22 years at the firm. This accumulation of experience builds confidence that the group can navigate a variety of market environments adeptly.
