Methodology: Barron’s rankings are based on asset-weighted returns in five categories — US equity funds; world equity funds (including international and global portfolios); mixed equity funds (which invest in stocks, bonds and other securities); taxable bond funds; and tax-exempt funds — as calculated by Lipper. Barron’s did not include sales charges in calculating returns. Each fund’s return was measured against those of all funds in its Lipper category, resulting in a percentile ranking which was then weighted by asset size, relative to the fund family’s other assets in its general classification. If a family’s biggest funds do well, that boosts its overall ranking; poor performance in its biggest funds hurts a firm’s ranking. To qualify for Lipper/ Barron’s Fund Survey, a group must have had at least three funds in Lipper’s general equity category, one world equity category, one mixed-asset (such as balanced or target-date fund), at least two taxable-bond funds and one national tax-exempt bond fund. Beginning in 2017, previously excluded single-sector and country equity funds are factored into the rankings as general equity. The rankings exclude all passive index funds, including pure index, enhanced index and index-based, but include actively managed ETFs and so-called smart-beta ETFs, which are passively managed but created from active strategies.
