Morningstar Announces Winners of 2019 Hong Kong Fund Awards

All of our winners delivered strong three- and five-year returns after adjusting for risk, in addition to outperformance of their peers during the last 12 months.

Morningstar 05/03/19

 

Morningstar has announced the winning funds and fund houses for its 2019 Hong Kong Fund Awards.   

The annual Morningstar Hong Kong Fund Awards are designed to help investors identify the funds and fund houses that added the most value for investors within the context of their relevant peer group in 2018 and over longer time periods. Morningstar selects the winners using a quantitative methodology with a qualitative overlay that considers the one-, three-, and five-year performance history of all eligible funds, and adjusts returns for risk using Morningstar Risk, a measure that imposes a higher penalty for downside variation in a fund’s return than it does for upside volatility.

There has been a stronger focus on fees both from the regulator and market participants. A number of MPF providers have been voluntarily slashing management fees in 2018, including some of the biggest MPF sponsors in Hong Kong. Since 2018, we have assigned a 20% weighting factor for fee assessment in our overall evaluation, which takes each scheme’s average cost compared to its peers into consideration, to reflect the importance of fees when it comes to MPF scheme selection.

“Investing is not just an opportunity, but a responsibility. Through the years, we’ve expanded our presence in global markets where investors need an independent view they can trust,” said Nick Cheung, Chief Executive Officer for Morningstar in Asia. “It’s our honor to recognize outstanding achievements in investment management again this year through the Morningstar Awards.”

“A defining feature of this year’s winners was their ability to deliver excellent peer-relative returns over three- and five-year periods, while managing to help insulate investors from severe drawdowns during volatile market conditions in 2018,” said Wing Chan, Morningstar’s Director of Manager Research Practice, EMEA & Asia. “These funds have demonstrated their ability to earn strong returns over the long term without undue risk. We believe that taking a patient, long-term view to investing will help investors reach their financial goals.”
