mornstar funds.jpg

Morningstar UK, one of the oracles of the investing world and a veritable data factory, has announced the winners of its 2020 UK Fund Awards. As independent and thorough as the research house itself, Morningstar’s awards celebrate the best funds from an objective perspective: what does the data say?


Morningstar UK Fund Awards

• Recognises the retail funds that “added the most value for investors within key sectors and across asset classes”

• Focuses mostly on a one-year return period (ending 31 December 2019) but also considers three- and five-year performance in the scoring

• Scoring uses the Morningstar Risk measure – funds lose more points for losses than they gain for returns (it’s a bit more complicated than that – read more here)
