The lists of Top Allocators and Top funds are updated monthly on www.SharingAlpha.com.
SharingAlpha is the first user-generated fund rating platform that has become the world's largest fund rating agency in terms of the number of fund selectors contributing to its ratings.
On SharingAlpha, individual vetted fund selectors are ranked in terms of their talent in selecting funds. They build a long-term provable track record of their ability enabling them to test their analysis, and if they choose the raters are able to present their proven track record to existing and potential clients. Since a long term track record is more meaningful, fund allocators are encouraged to start building a personal proven track record early on.
The fact that the SharingAlpha fund selectors determine which funds will be rated and they give that rating knowing it will influence their track record creates a robust model for reliable ratings based on the wisdom of a large number of professional participants while solving potential conflict of interest present in the traditional rating industry.
SharingAlpha offers professional fund selectors a way to improve their career prospects and to complement their fund research activities by leveraging on insights gathered from a large group of specialists.
Beyond a fund selection ranking, allocators have the possibility of building a virtual fund of funds and in turn SharingAlpha ranks them based on their performance not only as fund selectors but also as asset allocators.
Another advantage that SharingAlpha brings to the market is the possibility to grow to scale more rapidly and effectively. This is done by moving from the current rating model where fund selectors work in silos to a more centralized approach in which their views are shared on a dedicated platform.
SharingAlpha’s revenue model isn't based on charging fund managers for appearing on our platform, they offer the same chances to all fund managers be they large international firms or small local boutiques.
Furthermore, they empower buyers to take control of the distribution process by deciding which fund managers they want to hear from which leads to better-targeted leads through a process that is entirely independent from its fund rating methodology.
During the past year, due to the shift toward digital distribution channels, a long list of large international fund providers decided to use SharingAlpha’s services. Firms such as Vanguard, M&G, Janus Henderson, Jupiter, Franklin Templeton, Nomura, Hermes, Baille Gifford, MFS, TCW, Allianz, Robeco and many smaller boutiques.
The fund selectors are asked to rate the funds based on their expectations in terms of the fund's chances of outperforming in the future. The 3 parameters on which the overall rating is determined are factors that are expected to influence future performance:
SharingAlpha calculates the average ratings assigned by its users to each fund. It’s important to note that SharingAlpha only takes into account ratings from users that they can identify as professional fund selectors. Hence, anyone can technically signup and rate funds, however, in the fund rating calculation they don't include ratings coming from users that are, for example, non-financial industry members or fund providers.
Furthermore, in order to improve the quality of the aggregate ratings, instead of using an equal averaging of the rankings they provide a higher weighting to raters that have a better track performance on the platform.
A fund rating of above 3 implies that our raters expect the fund to create alpha in the future which makes this a powerful and unique rating. Funds with an average rating of above 4, based on at least 10 professional raters, are entitled to present the 'Highly Rated Fund' SharingAlpha rating logo.
SharingAlpha’s fund selection ranking is determined by professionals' ability to assess the future performance of the funds relative to a comparable ETF.
In case the rater expects the fund to outperform the ETF then the overall rating they assign to the fund will be over 3. It will be closer to 5 in case they have a strong conviction. Hence, a rating of between 1 and 3 is given to funds that are expected to generate negative alpha and a rating of between 3 and 5 is given to funds that are expected to generate positive alpha.
On a monthly basis they compare the ratings with the actual performance of the fund versus the ETF, the closer the prediction with the actual reality the higher the score they get for this rating.
They call this the Hit Score. They compare the overall average Hit Score of all the funds rated by the member and compare it to other members' average Hit Score and rank them accordingly.
