Source: Barron’s, “Barron’s Best Fund Families of 2020,” February 20, 2021. Barron’s rankings are based on asset weighted returns in funds in five categories: U.S. equity, world equity (including international and global portfolios), mixed asset (which invest in stocks, bonds and other securities), taxable bond, and tax-exempt (each a "Barron's ranking category"). Rankings also take into account an individual fund's performance within its Lipper peer universe. Lipper calculated each fund's net total return for the year ended December 31, 2020, minus the effects of 12b-1 fees and sales charges. Each fund in the survey was given a percentile ranking with 100 the highest and 1 the lowest in its category. That ranking measured how a fund compared with its peer "universe," as tracked by Lipper, not just the funds in the survey. Individual fund scores were then multiplied by the 2020 weighting of their Barron's ranking category as determined by the entire Lipper universe of funds. Those fund scores were then totaled, creating an overall score and ranking for each fund family in the survey in each Barron's ranking category. The process is repeated for the five- and ten-year rankings as well.

Barron's Fund Family Rankings are awarded annually.

To qualify for the ranking, firms must offer at least three active mutual funds or actively run ETFs in Lipper’s general U.S. stock category; one in world equity; and one mixed asset, such as a balanced or allocation fund. They also need to offer at least two taxable bond funds and one national tax-exempt bond fund. All funds must have a track record of at least one year. While the ranking excludes index funds, it does include actively managed ETFs and “smart beta” ETFs, which are run passively but built on active investment strategies.
