We rate each fund researched based on our three Rating levels:

This is our top rating. We are satisfied that this offering is managed according to a well-considered process, applied consistently and supported by the business and we believe is likely to add value over time.
This is a good fund or strategy, however we have some minor concerns which may be people, process or business related. In our view odds of adding value remain positive, but not significantly.
This is a negatively rated strategy. We have one or more fundamental concerns about aspects of this fund and believe there are better alternatives. We also believe the odds of this strategy adding value are low.
