FundCalibre wins Best Investment Fund Research UK Award for 2016

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

Each year, CFI.co’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 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.
