Morningstar Category Average

Morningstar has developed fund category averages on several data points to enable investors to compare the performance of their individual fund holdings with that of comparable funds.

Morningstar classifies funds into categories according to their actual holdings rather than the objectives stated by the fund management company. We then calculate category average data for several metrics, including performance, expenses, portfolio exposures, and more. Investors can use these category average data points to see how any individual fund stacks up against the category as a whole.

For more information on Morningstar's category classifications, please see the glossary entry for Morningstar Category.
