Elite Rated funds pick up gongs at Professional Adviser Awards 2018

Three Elite Rated funds picked up accolades at the 13th annual Professional Adviser awards last week.

In total, the services and products of some 200 advisers and other businesses were under consideration for the awards, which seek to reward excellence within the financial advice community and among the broader financial services sector.

Chaired by Julian Marr, editor of Professional Adviser, our own Tony Yousefian was on the six-strong judging panel for the multi-asset fund management awards, supporting Elite Rated entries.

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
