2018 Investment Accolades
Award-winning strategies for a wide range of investment opportunities
2018 Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year Awards
T. Rowe Price was named the 2018 Outstanding Investment House at the Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year Awards in London on 6 September 2018.
The awards recognise individual fund managers and fund groups that have made a substantial contribution to the UK retail investment management industry.
Jonathan Miller, Director of UK Manager Research for Morningstar said “These awards bring our extensive qualitative Manager Research to the forefront and celebrate active managers who have rewarded investors and been excellent stewards of fund shareholders’ capital,”
“T. Rowe Price was recognised for the Outstanding Investment House Award. This is a firm that we’ve long admired for its strong research-focused culture, a fund range that doesn’t get tinkered with, and clear visibility on succession planning. We also believe there’s a long-term philosophy that benefits investors. For a number of years UK investors have been able to access T. Rowe Price funds through their Luxembourg range that are registered here, but they have now brought strategies into a UK domiciled set-up. This displays their commitment to the UK market.”
The awards draw on Morningstar’s qualitative Manager Research, which uses a globally consistent five-pillar methodology to ascertain a Morningstar Analyst Rating™ for funds under coverage. The five pillars in the Morningstar Analyst Rating methodology are Process, People, Parent, Performance, and Price.

Rayner Spencer Mills Highly Commended - Best Equity Group
T. Rowe Price received a highly commended award for the Best Equity Group, having been voted for by the Rayner Spencer Mills adviser community for having achieved consistent superior results on behalf of investors in 2018.
This award recognises those fund managers and fund groups that are most valued by the Rayner Spencer Mills Research (RSMR) community.
The Methodology for the RSMR (Rayner Spencer Mills Research) Awards are as follows:
- The fund has to be RSMR rated to be in the review.
- The fund has to have a three year track record.
- The quantitative analysis is based on cumulative and discrete period data with funds scored on their quartile positioning.
- Information ratio is also considered as a risk vs return check.
- Each of the RSMR investment managers then applies their own individual qualitative perspective on the funds and votes for their top two funds.
- The fund with the highest number of votes and quantitative score wins – the highly commended fund is in second position.
