Alongside coverage of providers, SharingAlpha also updated its readers on recently highly-rated funds and highly rated funds by category.
Currently, digital health, macro-opportunities and growth-focused portfolios characterise SharingAlpha’s latest selection of highly rated funds. Within these themes, it has listed multiple popular products from big-name asset managers such as the Fidelity European Dynamic Growth Fund, the Morgan Stanley INVF Asia Opportunity Fund and the Credit Suisse Digital Health Equity Fund. SharingAlpha has additionally highlighted opportunities from asset managers off the beaten track of investor analysis such as the Seilern World Growth Fund and TM Cerno Pacific Fund.
Interestingly, in the categories section, it has pointed BlackRock Frontiers as the highest rated option in the emerging market equities space.
As readers of Fundeye have learned, SharingAlpha is an investment platform where professionals in the asset management industry such as fund selectors choose products and providers, building up a reputation and a greater weighting for successful choices.
To record its ratings for its reports, SharingAlpha utilises three parameters on which the overall rating is determined. These are:
- People - The experience and competitive edge of the fund manager and their team
- Price - The cost of the fund
- Portfolio - The way the strategy is run in terms of risk management
The investment platform then calculates the average ratings assigned by its users to each fund. SharingAlpha only includes ratings from users that are identified as professional fund buyers. Consequently, the results do not include ratings coming from users that are, for example, non-financial industry members or fund providers.
Over the coming weeks, Fundeye will continue to publish interviews fund selectors and products most highly rated on SharingAlpha.
