Morningstar Risk

This is a proprietary Morningstar data point.

An assessment of the variations in a fund's monthly returns, with an emphasis on downside variations, in comparison to similar funds.

In each Morningstar Category, the 10% of funds with the lowest measured risk are described as Low Risk, the next 22.5% Below Average, the middle 35% Average, the next 22.5% Above Average, and the top 10% High. Morningstar Risk is measured for up to three time periods (three, five, and 10 years). These separate measures are then weighted and averaged to produce an overall measure for the fund. Funds with less than three years of performance history are not rated.
