Morningstar launched analyst ratings for investment trusts in January 2012 and within 12 months the analyst team issued research reports and rating on roughly 100 trusts. Find out more in the article below about the first set of trusts to receive Gold ratings. To view all the latest research from the investment trust team, click here.

Morningstar today launched its qualitative, analyst-driven research and ratings for investment trusts and other closed-end funds. Initially, 32 funds have received ratings, ranging from Gold, Silver and Bronze, down to Neutral and Negative. Morningstar's closed-end funds research team aims to have 100 investment companies covered by the end of the year. In selecting which funds to rate first our analysts assess asset size, as an indicator of which funds are most commonly-held in portfolios, and demand from independent financial advisers who make sutiable recommendations to their clients.

Of the 32 research reports launched this morning, six have earned our analysts' top rating, Gold. Below are excerpts from the Morningstar research reports on the six top-rated funds--click the company name to read the full report. View all 32 reports in the Morningstar Investment Trust Quickrank. (Tip: click on the top of the Morningstar Anayst Rating column to rank from Gold down.)
