Milano Finanza Global Awards 2013

* The Institute compared open-end funds belonging to ten different categories, considered as the most relevant in Italy, using Morningstar data. The analysis rests upon two criteria, which take into account the return on capital and the protection of savings: the average annual return over the last five years (all data as of 31/12/2020); the risk expressed by the maximum percentage of loss over the last five years ("Max Drawdown"). The ranking of the best asset managers results from the sum of all points earned by the asset managers in the 10 categories analyzed. All the funds that are saleable in Italy (only for retail classes) and have a track-record of at least 5 years and a volume of at least €7,5 million were considered. For all the details regarding the calculation methodology please refer to the website www.istituto-qualita.com


** The criteria chosen to award to the three best Italian asset managers over the last three years (data as of December 31, 2019), were the same used for foreign funds. Yet, in this case the asset managers were divided into two groups: in fact, we divide the asset management industry between "big" and "small" companies, depending on or their promoted assets being above or below €4,000 million (Q3 2019 data, published by Assogestioni).
