Core Bond Medalist Funds

Core bond funds invest primarily in investment-grade US fixed-income issues including government, corporate, and securitized debt and hold less than 5% in below-investment-grade exposures. Here we highlight funds and ETFs that also received a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Morningstar Medalist Rating by our analysts. The Medalist Rating is a forward-looking assessment of an investment strategy. The rating is on a five-tier scale running from Gold to Negative. For actively managed funds, Morningstar assigns Gold, Silver, and Bronze ratings to vehicles expected to add value over the long term when compared with a relevant Morningstar Category index after accounting for fees and risk. For passive strategies, funds and ETFs with top ratings are expected to deliver alpha that exceeds the lesser of the category median net alpha, or zero, over the long term.
