LONDON, 14th February 2013-Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, today announced the nominees for its fourth annual Morningstar European Fund Manager of the Year Awards.

"The Morningstar awards showcase outstanding fund managers who have demonstrated excellence in the past year and in their stewardship of fund shareholder capital over the long term," said Christopher Traulsen, CFA, director of European fund research for Morningstar. "For 2013, we're also introducing an award for excellence in fixed income. Morningstar's analyst coverage of European fixed-income funds has grown substantially over the year, and we believe this new award will help highlight for investors some of the very best managers in the sector."
