FundCalibre wins Best Investment Fund Research UK Award for 2016

Just two years after its launch, FundCalibre has won the Best Investment Fund Research UK Award for 2016.

Each year,’s judging panel seeks out individuals and organisations that contribute significantly to the convergence of economies and truly add value for all stakeholders. The awards aim to identify and reward excellence and to inspire others to further improve their own performance.

Commenting on the win, the judging panel said: “Taking the guesswork out of the investment process, FundCalibre provides a valuable service to the independent investor. It enables experienced investors to help validate decisions and find hidden gems, while newcomers may benefit from its simple, easy-to-understand ratings system; straightforward, jargon-free research notes; and weekly editorial email to highlight and explain major financial news.”

Darius McDermott, managing director of FundCalibre, added: “It’s great to win such an award. We set out with the aim of making available quality, independent fund research to the general public and it’s good to know we are succeeding. 2017 is an exciting year for us as we develop our services further. We will be adding investment trust research shortly, as well as making more detailed information available to the adviser community.”

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. 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. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
