FundCalibre: short-listed finalist for two research awards

FundCalibre has been short-listed for two investment research awards. It is one of four finalists in the ‘Best fund ratings and research service’ category and one of six finalists for the ‘Best investment research blog’ gong.

The Investment Week Investment Research Awards are designed to highlight research services that demonstrate knowledge, innovation, engagement, clarity and transparency.

Investment Week believes that, whether used to cut through basic information, obtain original content, opinion, recommendations or value added, investment research services can not only provide a one-stop shop for unique investment information, but also enhance and enrich information that is currently available in a way that is easily and quickly interpreted into the investment decision-making process.

When deciding on the finalists, judges looked for:

  • Clear identification of the research objectives and principles
  • Depth and breadth of research provided
  • How objective the research is
  • How it fulfils the client’s needs
  • Added value elements of the research, including proprietary rating systems and technology tools

The winners will be announces on 3 October – wish us luck!

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.
