Morningstar is a big exponent of the benefit of putting your eggs in many baskets by investing in funds, but we also recognise that many investors prefer to avoid management fees and seek to add alpha themselves. Just because you do your own stock picking doesn't mean you can't also tap into the knowledge and experience of the fund industry's leading players. And we've done exactly that.

Of the 700+ open-end funds available for sale in the UK and rated by Morningstar Analysts, there are just three UK equity income funds* available to non-institutional investors that have earned Morningstar Analysts' top accolade of a Gold rating.
