RiskMetrics launches mutual fund evaluation service

The quantitative approach identifies those funds that have provided the greatest risk-adjusted performance, while maintaining the most stable level of risk over the last five years.

The evaluations are assigned within four style categories: conservative, balanced, growth and aggressive. These categories are determined by the risk profiles of each fund. RiskMetrics launched the lists simultaneously in the United Kingdom and the United States.

"This approach allows us to separate fund managers who govern risk from those who are erratic," said Ethan Berman, RiskMetrics' chief excutive.
