Currently, the class A of the zCapital Dividend Fund is classified with three stars (ZA class four stars).
The Morningstar Analyst Rating is the summary expression of Morningstar's forward-looking analysis of a fund. Morningstar analysts assign the ratings on a five-tier scale with three positive ratings of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, a Neutral rating, and a Negative rating. If a fund receives a positive rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze, it means Morningstar analysts think highly of the fund and expect it to outperform over a full market cycle of at least five years. Class A is classified with a Silver rating (class ZA Gold rating).
