Citywire Group Ratings are awarded to recognise the ability of a group’s managers to deliver consistently strong risk-adjusted returns in a given sector.
Where managers have moved to different funds or companies in the same sector, their track records are combined. A final score is generated biannually for each group on a sector by sector basis and a pool of best performing groups is formed.
Within that pool the ratings are as follows:
- The top 10% receive a Platinum award
- The next 20% a Gold
- The next 30% a Silver
- The remaining 40% are awarded a Bronze
Ratings are adjusted to reflect managers leaving and joining within the six-month update.
