There are thousands of funds available to UK investors, which can make it difficult to find a fund that suits your needs. In many cases, investors use Morningstar’s Gold/Silver/Bronze rating system to find suitable investments. Sometimes it helps to speak with friends, family and professional advisers to figure out which funds would help you meet your investment goals. But in this instance, you can count on your fellow Morningstar users to help guide you to quality investments. The following list contains the top five most popular, researched funds on 

1. Aberdeen Emerging Markets Fund

The Morningstar research on this Gold-rated fund has been the most viewed by our site users, with Morningstar analyst Amaya Assan explaining in her analyst research that the chief attraction of this fund is the management team’s thorough research and investment process. Their process focuses on “quality companies that have sustainable, competitive business models, strong balance sheets, high returns on assets and capital, and [good] corporate governance.” However, the research warns that this fund can be volatile, along with other emerging market funds.

2. Kames High Yield Bond Fund

Investors have been pouring their money into high-yield bond funds over the last few months, so it’s little surprise that this Silver-rated fund is receiving so much attention. The fund is run by an experienced, respected manager, Phil Millburn, who is supported by co-manager Melanie Mitchell. “We view Milburn and Mitchell as experienced practitioners in the high-yield markets and we have a high regard for their rigorous company analysis,” writes Morningstar analyst Marianne Weller in her latest research report.
