The actual awards — "The Standard & Poor’s/Business Week Excellence in Fund Management Awards" "recognizes fund managers and management teams across different investment styles, who have proven histories of strong fund management anchored by track records of consistently sound returns."

There is a whole lot of additional reportage on various personalities, styles, etc., at this online page at Business Week. Its an interesting read, if you follow this sort of stuff (I do).
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
