In its annual update of Baron Small Cap Fund’s profile, Morningstar reaffirmed the Fund’s “Silver” Analyst Rating, citing Portfolio Manager Cliff Greenberg’s proven investment process over the 23 years he has managed the Fund and his instrumental role in the Firm’s success. To view the profile, visit www.morningstar.com. (Subscription required to access).The Morningstar Analyst Rating is not a credit or risk rating, but a subjective evaluation performed by the analysts of Morningstar, Inc. Morningstar evaluates funds based on five key pillars (process, performance, people, parent and price). Morningstar’s analysts use this valuation to identify funds they believe are more likely to outperform over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. Analysts consider quantitative and qualitative factors and the weightings of each pillar may vary. The Analyst Rating reflects overall assessment and is overseen by Morningstar’s Analyst Rating Committee. The analyst rating scale is five-tiered, with three positive ratings (Gold, Silver, Bronze), a Neutral rating and a Negative rating, with Gold being the highest rating and Negative being the lowest rating. The Morningstar Analyst Ratings should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a mutual fund and are based on Morningstar’s current expectations about future events. Morningstar does not represent ratings as a guarantee. Analyst Ratings involve unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause Morningstar’s expectations not to occur or to differ significantly. The Analyst Rating scale ranges from Gold to Negative, with Gold being the highest rating and Negative being the lowest rating. A fund with a “Gold” rating distinguishes itself across the five pillars and has garnered the analysts’ highest level of conviction. A fund with a ‘Silver’ rating has notable advantages across several, but perhaps not all, of the five pillars that give the analysts a high level of conviction. A “Bronze”-rated fund has advantages that outweigh the disadvantages across the five pillars, with sufficient level of analyst conviction to warrant a positive rating. A fund with a ‘Neutral’ rating isn’t seriously flawed across the five pillars, nor does it distinguish itself very positively. A “Negative” rated fund is flawed in at least one if not more pillars and is considered an inferior offering to its peers. Analyst Ratings are reevaluated at least every 14 months. © Morningstar 2019. All rights reserved.
