The Best Mutual Fund Managers

Business Week awards a prize each year for "Excellence in Fund Management." (You can read the full story here).

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."

Sounds good to me. 

Here are the winners for 2005:
