Morningstar’s fund analysts doled out two Gold ratings in the past week to funds managed by Franklin Templeton Investments and Aston Funds.

According to David Kathman, an analyst at Morningstar, the 4-Star rated $4.5 billion Aston/Montag & Caldwell Growth fund stands out from the large-growth pack for the experience of its management team and its investment approach. “The 17 analysts and portfolio managers who run the fund average more than 20 years of investment experience, and nobody has left the team (for reasons other than retirement) in the past 25 years,” wrote Kathman.
