The nominations are in for the sixth annual Morningstar European Fund Manager of the Year Awards, with winners to be announced at a gala ceremony following the opening day of the Morningstar Institutional Conference in Amsterdam on 19 March. 

The nominations, like the awards, are difficult to come by. We give only three of these awards in Europe each year: European Equity Fund Manager of the Year; European Global Equity Fund Manager of the Year; and European Fixed-Income Fund Manager of the Year. The winners of these awards are nominated and selected by Morningstar’s team of qualitative fund analysts across Europe. The analysts put funds through a rigorous evaluation using our Five Pillars methodology, which weighs the quality of management, the strength of the process used to run the fund, the quality of the parent organisation—including how it treats investors in its funds—performance, and costs. 

Although nominated managers should have had a strong 2014, that is far from sufficient qualification unto itself. They should also have done well for investors over longer time periods and must have been rated by our analysts as Morningstar Medallists—meaning the analysts have recognised the fund with a Gold, Silver or Bronze Morningstar Analyst Rating.
