Independent investment research company Morningstar Research (Pty) Limited, a subsidiary of Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN) has named the finalists of its 2021 South Africa Fund Awards.

Morningstar selects the finalists 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. For the full Morningstar Awards methodology, please click here.
