It's that time of year again--time to choose a fund Manager of the Year. Toward the end of each year, Morningstar analysts nominate the managers they feel are most deserving, and at year's end we choose the winner.

Although it's called Manager of the Year, we look at much more than single-year returns. We seek to reward managers who have made a lot of money for people over the long haul.

We look for managers who are great stewards of shareholders' money, meaning they always do the right thing. They keep expenses and trading costs down. They write thoughtful shareholder letters that explain what's really going on at the fund. They close a fund in a timely fashion. They invest a substantial sum of their own money in their funds.
