Morningstar Awards winners visit Beursplein 5
The Morningstar Awards are designed to help investors around the world identify the year's most exceptional funds and fund managers and are handed out for the tenth time this year.
The 2014 Morningstar Awards recognize retail funds and fund groups that have been good stewards of investor capital within the context of their relevant peer group in 2013 and over longer time periods. Winners are selected using a quantitative methodology developed by Morningstar that considers the one-, three- and five-year performance history of all eligible funds. Morningstar adjusts the returns for risk using a utility theory based screen that imposes a higher penalty for downside variation in a fund’s return than it does for upside volatility. Head of Distribution Benelux at Fidelity, Paul van Olst, sounds the gong.
