Quartile Rankings Report

Quartile rankings are a measure of how well a fund has performed against all other funds in its asset class over a one-year period. Mutual funds with the highest percent returns (top 25%) are assigned to a quartile of 1, whereas those with the worst returns (bottom 25%) are assigned a quartile of 4.

Note: The ranking of a fund may change for the following reason. When funds with historical performance data are added to our site, the quartile rankings are recalculated to take into account the performance history of the new funds. The addition of the new funds may change the ranking of funds presently on the site.
