Benefit from the only Ratings provider that evaluates all key performance attributes of a fund.

Crown Ratings - Active

The Crown Fund Rating is a quantitative rating that is based on a fund’s historical performance relative to an appropriate benchmark.

Relying on three key measurements - alpha, volatility and consistent performance, the ratings are designed to help investors distinguish funds that have superior performance in terms of stock picking, consistency and risk control. It is rebalanced twice yearly in January and July.

Crown Ratings - Passive

Passive funds and exchange-traded funds attempt to track their index, with the aim of delivering a return as closely in line with it as possible.

The Passive Crown Fund Rating incorporates the tracking difference, tracking error and fund size to rate consistency. It is rebalanced twice yearly in January and July.

ESG Ratings

ESG Ratings are designed to give investors and fund selectors an indication of a fund’s ESG performance and risk. However, little to no uniform approach in the methodology of ESG ratings and increasing divergence in the market is potentially causing more confusion than clarity.

To support financial advisers in making investment decisions aligned with their clients’ objectives and values, we will be introducing ESG Ratings into FE Analytics to offer a number of data points to assess a fund’s ESG credentials in one place.
