Mid Cap Growth

Morningstar's Star Ratings reflect risk adjusted performance and are derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three, five, and ten-year (if applicable) time periods.


Alpha- The difference between an investment's actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk (as measured by beta).

Beta- An investment's sensitivity to market movements.

R-Squared- Ranges from 0 to 100 and reveals how closely an investment's returns track those of a benchmark index.

Standard Deviation- Measures how much an investment's returns are likely to fluctuate.

Mean- Represents the annualized total return for a fund over 3 years.

Sharpe Ratio- Measures how an investment balances risks and rewards. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the investment's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Excess Return- The difference between an investment option's return and the return of an external standard such as a passive index.

Tracking Error- Also known as "excess risk", is defined as the standard deviation or volatility of excess returns.

Information Ratio- A risk-adjusted measure commonly used to evaluate an active manager's involvement skill. It's defined as the manager's excess return divided by the variability or standard deviation of the excess return.
