A Preview of the 2014 Morningstar International-Stock Fund Manager of the Year Competition

These managers are potential contenders for this year's honor.

There are just a couple of months left in 2014, so it makes sense to see how the competitions for the Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year awards are progressing. We covered the domestic-stock asset class in this column last week. Here, we handle international equity, and we will address the other asset classes in upcoming columns. 

The candidates for the Fund Manager of the Year awards must have much more than superior calendar-year returns going for them. The contenders must also boast impressive long-term records, follow sound strategies, and have a history of serving many investors well. Toward that end, I screened for actively run diversified emerging-markets, foreign-stock, and world-stock funds with Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Bronze or better, top-quartile year-to-date and 10-year returns, and at least one manager who has been in place for 10 years or more.
