KUALA LUMPUR, 7 April 2022 — Morningstar Asia Limited, a subsidiary of Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, has announced the winning funds for its 2022 Morningstar Fund Awards Malaysia.
The annual Morningstar Malaysia Fund Awards recognise retail funds that have added the most value for investors within the context of their relevant peer group in 2021 and over longer time periods. Morningstar selects the winners using a quantitative methodology, along with a qualitative overlay. Weightings to one-, three-, and five-year risk-adjusted performance are factored into the methodology.
Wing Chan, Morningstar’s Head of Manager Research, Europe and Asia Pacific, remarked: “Our 2022 winners have proven themselves to be excellent stewards of investors’ capital. They have demonstrated their abilities to navigate through market volatility and deliver excellent returns over the longer term. We applaud all winners for their outstanding achievements.”
The 2022 Morningstar Awards winners in Malaysia are:
The Morningstar fund category awards are based on Morningstar fund data as of 31 December 2021. The awards methodology emphasises the one-year period, but funds must also have delivered strong three- and five-year returns after adjusting for risk within the awards peer groups in order to obtain an award. In selecting winners, fund returns are adjusted for risk using the Morningstar Risk, a measure which imposes a higher penalty for downside variation in a fund’s return than it does for
upside volatility. For the full methodology, please click here. The full methodology for the awards is available here.
