Top Honors Go to Vanguard and Its Strong Culture
Vanguard boasts the largest number of Gold-rated funds.
Morningstar covers more than two thirds of Vanguard's funds, and most of those are Morningstar Medalists. All told, Vanguard's boasts 29 Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Gold, including its target-date series as one of those.
In fact, none of Vanguard's funds under coverage are rated Negative and just six are rated Neutral. All of those are actively managed and subadvised. The reasons for their Neutral ratings are varied, but all of them earn Positive Price Pillar ratings, as well as Neutral Performance Pillar ratings.
