Join us to celebrate the best of fund management talent in the UK, and find out who will walk away with the most coveted title of all; Alpha Manager of the year 2020.

 

Alpha Managers revealed

In this year's January rebalance, 200 fund managers were rated FE fundinfo Alpha Managers, with 55 joining the list, representing the top 10 per cent of fund management talent. 

"The Alpha Manager ratings illustrate how the most successful managers consistently add value for investors over the course of their careers, removing the nuances of short-term market movements other cyclical factors.”

 

Ten managers join the 'Hall of Fame'

This year, 58 fund managers made the list, 12 of which have maintained their position since 2015. Inconsistent performance, retirement and a shrinking portfolio size prompted the exit of 13 unlucky managers.  

The FE fundinfo Alpha Manager Hall of Fame is an elite list of fund managers recognised for being rated Alpha Manager for seven consecutive years. 

The Alpha Manager Rating is a quantitative rating that distinguishes the top UK fund managers based on alpha generation and outperformance across their career history, allowing investors to instantly identify those managers who have consistently outperformed their peer group over time. 

Only the top 10% of UK managers receive this accolade, representing those managers who are the very best of the best in the industry.
