The Fund Managers of the Year have been selected based on risk-adjusted returns, which is the return per unit of risk for the schemes for the 12 months ended September 28, 2012. For equity funds, only open-ended diversified funds, whether large-cap or mid-cap, were considered. Sector or theme funds were not eligible. (Click here for DIRECTORY)

The daily returns on the NAV and a risk-free return of 7 per cent were used for the purpose of calculation of the Sharpe ratio. For the debt funds, the ultra short-term and liquid schemes were not eligible for the ranking, whereas the risk-free return was taken as 8.5162% (91 days Treasury bill average for last one year). Moreover, the fund manager should have managed the scheme for at least the one year to be eligible for the award.

Also, for the further eligibility, the sum of QAAUM is considered and 10% of the bottom equity funds and 25% of the bottom debt funds are moved out. To ensure that no fund manager emerged as a winner merely based on the performance of a particular scheme managed by him/her, the concept of ‘’ was adopted. Here, a composite score was ascertained for each fund manager comprising the weighted average of the Sharpe ratio achieved by each scheme managed by him/her. The average one year corpus of each scheme and the sum of QAAUM was used as weights to arrive at his/her score.
