Henderson, Invesco, Comgest and Dodge & Cox are among the managers identified as offering stellar performance via funds in the European equity, European fixed income, and global equity categories of this year’s Morningstar European Fund Manager of the Year Awards.

The shortlist of managers has been drawn up by Morningstar’s 30-strong research team of Europe, Middle East and Africa analysts. The list has been drawn from a universe of some 1,400 funds available to investors across Europe.  Christopher Traulsen, CFA, director of Manager Research, EMEA, said that the work “allowed us to identify those managers whom we believe stand out amongst their peers.”

To qualify for consideration by the analysts based in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Finland, Denmark and Norway, the portfolio manager must be lead on at least one fund that has obtained a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver or Bronze, and have at least one fund available for sale in at least one European market.
