2 The 2018 results were based on responses from 243 global asset owners’ ratings, on the portfolio transitions they mandated and the managers they used in the previous 12-months. Cost performance vs. estimate was rated on a scale from 1 (always missed) to 5 (always beat), with a "3" meaning "usually matched." Therefore, average scores closest to 3.00 are ideal.
