80% of advisers use Diamond Ratings as part of their selection criteria*

As a completely independent and unbiased assessment, Diamond Ratings are an easy way to understand where a fund, fund range or model portfolio (MPS) sits in the market.

This helps Asset Managers communicate the quality of their proposition versus their competition – to internal and external audiences. And makes it easier for advisers to segment the propositions available for their clients. Turning data into bright investment decisions.

Clear and consistent scoring approach

We use a robust and transparent scoring method to assess both quality and performance.

  • Our experts use quantitative and qualitative criteria to provide an unbiased assessment.
  • Our simple scale of 1 to 5 easily identifies where a fund or fund/MPS family sits in terms of performance (adjusted for risk), and competitiveness in areas like cost, scale and access.
