What is an FE Alpha Manager?

The FE Alpha Manager ratings look at the performance of a fund manager over their career regardless of the number of funds they have managed or the number of places worked. They are designed to distinguish fund managers who have consistently performed well over the longer term. Only the top 10% of managers achieve this status every year.
