Chant West Fund Rating

A Chant West rating sums up our overall view on the merits of a particular fund relative to industry best practice. Funds are awarded a rating from 5 Apples (the highest) to 1 Apple (the lowest).

The rating takes four main criteria into account: investments, member services, fees and organisational strengths.

A key aspect of our ratings is that in most cases they relate to multi-manager investment options (the main exceptions are where the option is mostly passively managed). This is because most members are invested in this type of option. Relying on the provision of formal investment documentation from managers, we focus on the quality of a fund’s investment governance, its internal investment team, its investment consultant and the structure of its investment options. Investment beliefs and processes, and the quality of the people involved, are far more important to us than past performance, which is generally not a reliable indicator of future performance.
