Licenced Funds

Demonstrating excellence
3D investing 5 stars - smaller

Although we rate every fund without prejudice, a select number of funds have been licensed to carry the 3D Star Rating.  The star rating provides independent verification of excellence and is based on quantitative and qualitative analysis.

The star rating logo shows that the licencee is one of a small number of the best ethical and sustainable funds.  The logo can be linked to a fund profile which is produced for licencees to be freely distributed.  See example.

Licenced funds are listed here.  Other fund providers wishing to license their fund should contact us for further information.
