Hundreds of terms are defined here using simple language and clear examples, ensuring that you understand how to interpret technical terms or data points. Directly below the glossary, users will find several methodology documents to provide deeper insight into Morningstar’s proprietary ratings. These documents will demonstrate how each rating was developed and how you should utilize the ratings to support your investment decisions.
For example, many mutual funds will have a Star Rating and an Analyst Rating. The Star Rating for mutual funds is a backward-looking measure based on a fund’s past risk- and load-adjusted return versus its category peers. The Analyst Rating is a summary of Morningstar’s forward-looking analysis of a fund. For folks who are focused on past performance, the Star Rating is a great indicator. However, for those who are interested in Morningstar analysts’ opinions on the long-term success of a fund, the Analyst Rating would be a more appropriate benchmark.
Read about these ratings and more by clicking on the methodology documents on the Help and Education tab.
