Schroders wins Morningstar Outstanding Investment House Award

Today Morningstar UK, a leading provider of independent investment research, has announced Schroders as the winner of this year’s Outstanding Investment House Award.

The annual Fund Manager of the Year Awards, now in their 14th year, recognise and celebrate the best of the UK fund management profession who are selected by Morningstar’s manager research analysts.

The awards draw from Morningstar’s qualitative forward-looking fund rating system, the Morningstar Analyst Rating™ for funds. That assessment turns on three key “pillars”—People, Process, and Parent—with the rating reflecting how well the analysts expect the fund to perform after fees, while also taking risk into account.

Doug Abbott, Head of UK Intermediary at Schroders, commented:

“We are delighted to receive this prestigious industry accolade. This is a testament to our active investment management approach with a purpose to create a better future by investing responsibly for our clients. As a global investment manager we recognise that we have an important part to play in shaping the future of all our stakeholders.

“The cornerstone of our success is both our focus on excellent client service and our ability to attract, retain and nurture best-in-class investment professionals – we take pride in a strong team culture and a clear commitment to developing and promoting in house talent.”

Johanna Kyrklund, Chief Investment Officer and Global Head of Multi-Asset Investment, Schroders, commented:

 “What sets us apart is our forward-looking approach to assessing potential ESG risks as we integrate sustainability considerations, such as climate change impact, throughout our investment process and our long-term engagement with the companies in which we invest.

“Our focus on doing the right thing for our clients, our people and our planet lies at the centre of our culture. We are committed to delivering positive outcomes for all.”
