Awards were given to funds with a 3, 5 and 10 year history as at the end of the evaluation year in equity, bond and mixed-asset Lipper Global Classifications with at least five distinct portfolios. Both group and fund awards were calculated using Lipper’s Consistent Return score. A more detailed Fund Awards Methodology can be found at excellence.thomsonreuters.com/lipper.
