Morningstar Announces Winners of 2018 Singapore Fund Awards

All of our winners delivered strong three- and five-year returns after adjusting for risk, in addition to outperformance of their peers during the last 12 months.

Morningstar has announced the winning funds and fund houses for its 2018 Singapore Fund Awards.   

The annual Morningstar Singapore Fund Awards are designed to help investors identify the funds and fund houses that added the most value for investors within the context of their relevant peer group in 2017 and over longer time periods. Morningstar selects the winners using a quantitative methodology with a qualitative overlay that considers the one-, three-, and five-year performance history of all eligible funds, and adjusts returns for risk using Morningstar Risk, a measure that imposes a higher penalty for downside variation in a fund’s return than it does for upside volatility. 

“Over the years, we have earned trust from investors for our in-depth, unbiased, and independent analyses that help them make informed investment decisions,” Nick Cheung, Chief Executive Officer for Morningstar in Asia, said. “It’s our honor to recognize outstanding achievement in investment management again this year through the Morningstar Awards.”

“All of our winners delivered strong three- and five-year returns after adjusting for risk, in addition to outperformance of their peers during the last 12 months,” Wing Chan, Morningstar’s Director of Manager Research in Asia, said. “These funds have demonstrated that they have the ability to earn strong returns over the long term without undue risk. We believe that taking a patient, long-term view to investing will ultimately help investors reach their financial goals.”
