Although Jensen Quality Growth's longest-tenured manager will retire in early 2018, its prudent, consistently applied strategy and the rest of its veteran team continue to merit a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver. Robert Zagunis, comanager of this fund since January 1993 and the former chair of the investment committee, announced he will retire at the end of February 2018. His departure is a significant loss, but the rest of the team is experienced and stable: The other six members have worked on the team for 8-16 years. Furthermore, the fund has maintained its disciplined process and continued to outperform through the retirements of previous veterans, including firm founder Val Jensen in 2003.
