The Morningstar Rating is a measure of a fund’s risk-adjusted return, relative to similar funds. Funds are rated from 1 to 5 stars, with the best performers receiving 5 stars and the worst performers receiving a single star.
The risk rating is based on a risk & reward scale from 1-7 in accordance with guidelines recommended by the European Securities and Markets Authority (“ESMA”). For example, a risk rating of 1 would indicate a very low risk investment, while a 7 would indicate a very high risk investment.
Total Expense Ratio (TER):
A measure of the total costs associated with managing and operating a fund. The TER consists primarily of the management fee plus other expenses such as trustee, custody, or operating expenses. It is expressed as a percentage of the fund’s total net asset value.
The distribution yield represents the ratio of distributed income over the last 12 months to the fund’s current Net Asset Value.
