Earlier this week, we announced our nominees for Morningstar's Domestic- and International-Stock Fund Manager of the Year. This article will discuss the nominees for Fixed-Income Fund Manager of the Year. We'll announce the winners on Jan. 26.
To choose funds to nominate, Morningstar's fixed-income manager-research team parses through the coverage universe using a series of quantitative and subjective criteria to determine a list of nominees. As we've written in our nominations for the Domestic- and International-Stock categories, these nominations reflect more than the managers' performance and portfolio decisions in 2015 alone; we're not trying to promote one-year wonders. Rather, we recognize managers whose strong results in 2015 underscore the merits of their approaches and their ability to deliver sound long-term results.
