For investment objectives that have a long-term view, they offer strategic asset class model portfolios that they construct, manage, and monitor.

Manager Research Service
Morningstar has provided independent analyst research to investors for over 30 years. Their manager research service helps firms and investors with their need for independent and high-quality investment due diligence, which is required for selecting investments and creating portfolios for investors. They have more than 110 manager research analysts around the globe covering over 3,500 funds and ETPs each year. After meeting with investment managers and formulating their own research, their analysts deliver a Morningstar Analyst Rating, which is a forward-looking and qualitative assessment on a strategy’s ability to outperform its peer group or benchmark on a risk-adjusted basis over a full market cycle. Their analysts assign the ratings on a five-tier scale, with three positive ratings of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, a Neutral rating, and a Negative rating. They evaluate funds based on five key pillars—People, Process, Parent, Performance, and Price—factors they believe are important to a fund’s success. Their analysts pride themselves on their independence, quality, and consistency.
