The big reveal – the RSMR R Awards winners 2023

RSMR has been researching and rating funds since 2004 and providing high quality outsourced investment solutions to advice businesses since 2007. RSMR provides one of the widest sets of recognised and respected fund ratings in the marketplace, underpinned by rigorous research, extensive experience, and thorough analysis. The RSMR Investment Team covers the entire Investment Association universe, finally rating around 15% of the researchable universe at any one time with all rated funds carefully monitored and reviewed on an ongoing basis. For the last 10 years and on an annual basis, RSMR has presented a set of R Awards to fund groups offering strategies they consider to be best in class versus their peers at their flagship conference in Harrogate.

‘It’s been a difficult period for investment firms with returns concentrated in a relatively small number of sectors and stocks, but there are managers that have overcome many of these hurdles to deliver robust returns. We feel it’s appropriate to acknowledge this with the presentation of an R Award at our flagship conference in Harrogate.’ Ken Rayner, CEO of RSMR.

RSMR apply a whole host of quantitative filters to funds from their rated lists, over both discrete and cumulative periods, to filter and produce a short list. The list is then reviewed by all members of the RSMR research team who apply their own qualitative views to discuss and debate each of the award categories. The resulting output of this discussion is a highly commended and winning fund or group for each award.

Here are this year’s categories, winners & highly commended fund groups:
