Looking for fund ideas to add your portfolio? Morningstar analysts positively rate the funds they think will outperform peers over the medium to long-term based on five criteria; the fund manager, the parent company, past performance, the investment process and the fund’s annual charge.

The highest rating that can be bestowed on a fund is the Gold Rating – although this is not a “buy” recommendation. It is up to the individual investor, or their financial adviser, to decide on the best asset allocation to meet their investment needs. First you decide which asset class, geographical region or sector exposure you want – then you can use Morningstar ratings to find the best possible fund for you.

These five funds are among the few which are currently Gold Rated, plus have secured a five-star performance rating, meaning they have outperformed their peers over a rolling-three-year basis. Note that this does not mean they have delivered the best performance across the entire fund universe, indeed they could have lost money in the past three years, but they are the best in class.
