The Mutual Fund Performance Ranking (Star Ranking) aims to distinguish funds based on their relative actual performance within a category of similar funds. In measuring performance, PACRA considers absolute monthly return and its variance measured through standard deviation.

The ranking is a pure quantitative measure based on historical returns of a fund relative to other funds, and does not take into account other factors including fund management capability of the asset manager and the quality of risk management systems, controls and processes. Hence, the rankings do not provide any assurance as to future returns of the fund.
