Morningstar UK users will soon be able to search for funds using criteria such as the length of time the fund manager has been managing a specific trust, writes Robert Stock.
The US ratings agency is also allowing visitors the choice of reviewing funds through its own-defined sectors, or the more mainstream Autif sectors.
The website, at www.morningstar.co.uk, went live in March, bringing a specially tailored form of the US star rating system to the UK. The system assigns funds a rating between five stars for the top 10% of funds in any one Morningstar-generated category, to one star for the bottom 10%, calculated on risk-adjusted performance history over a three-year timescale.
Morningstar is also working to provide information feeds to other websites. Agreements are already in place with Torquil Clarke, E-trade and Cofunds.
