PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Jan 26, 2015) - Glenmede Investment Management, LP (GIM), a privately-held and independent investment management firm, announced today that its Glenmede Large Cap Growth Fund (GTLLX) finished 2014 in the first percentile for one-year performance in the Morningstar Large Cap Growth mutual fund category, which includes 1775 funds.

"It remains our priority to deliver quality and consistent performance to investors," said Gordon Fowler, CEO and CIO of Glenmede.

The fund, which had $860.7 million in AUM as of December 31, 2014, is co-managed by Vladimir de Vassal, CFA, and Paul T. Sullivan, CFA. Both de Vassal and Sullivan have managed the fund since its inception in 2004. GTLLX is a five-star rated Morningstar fund in the US OE Large Growth category.

"Since the fund's inception, we've followed a fundamental and quantitative management approach to identifying stocks that we believe offer the trifecta: low valuations, high free cash flow yields and strong earnings trends," said de Vassal. "With an additional focus on tax-efficient investments, we look to build a fund portfolio that meets a variety of investment needs. We look forward to advancing our success in 2015."

Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will change so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by calling 1.800.442.8299..

The Fund's comparative benchmark is "The Russell 1000 Growth Index" which is an unmanaged, market-capitalization-weighted total return index comprised of securities in the Russell 1000 Index with greater than average growth orientation. This unmanaged index is a total return index with dividends reinvested. The S&P 500 Stock Index is a widely recognized capitalization-weighted index of 500 common stock prices in U.S. companies. Each Morningstar category average reflects a universe of funds with similar investment objectives. One cannot invest directly in an index.

Morningstar Ratings measure risk-adjusted returns. The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar rating metrics.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ (based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance, including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.)

The highest or most favorable Morningstar percentile rank is 1 and the lowest percentile rank is 100. The top-performing fund in a category will always receive a rank of 1. Various rating agencies categorize funds differently.

Free Cash Flow Yield is an overall return evaluation which consists of the free cash flow per share divided by share price.
