OBSR launches five year certificate

Morningstar busines OBSR is launching a new certificate scheme to highlight funds that have held an OBSR Fund Rating for five consecutive years or more with the launch of a new certificate scheme.

The five year certificates will be awarded to 128 funds from some 35 firms.

Richard Romer-Lee, joint managing director OBSR, said the certificates in nearly all cases signify longevity of the manager as much as the product, because typically if there is a manager change then OBSR will suspend the product from its ratings service.

“So, to hold one of our new certificates signifies long-term stability as well as performance, compared to the fund’s objectives,” Romer-Lee said.

The funds receiving the certificates are listed as:
