Morningstar to Host 18th Annual Morningstar® Canadian Investment Awards and 
Gala 
TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Morningstar Research Inc., a Canadian 
subsidiary of Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), will hold its 18(th) annual 
Morningstar® Canadian Investment Awards Gala on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 at 
the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The Morningstar Awards are designed 
to help investors identify the year's most exceptional funds and fund managers 
in Canada. 
In Canada, the Morningstar Awards have a longstanding history of recognizing 
companies and individuals who have made a difference in the lives of investors 
through superior investment products, service, marketing, and education. 
The analyst-driven Fund Manager of the Year awards recognize managers who have 
not only achieved impressive risk-adjusted returns, but have also been strong 
stewards of shareholder capital over the long term. Morningstar has added five 
new awards to the line-up: ETF Provider of the Year, Best Equity ETF, Best 
Fixed-Income ETF, Best Specialty Equity Fund, and Best Use of Technology. For 
the complete awards line-up, please visit www.investmentawards.com/awards. 
"Being nominated for and winning a Morningstar Award is considered one of the 
highest honours in the country's investment industry. Each year, we look 
forward to recognizing and celebrating the industry's most outstanding 
achievements," said Scott Mackenzie, president and chief executive officer of 
Morningstar Research Inc. "This year's awards gala will be Canada's best yet, 
and we've expanded our awards line-up to reflect the growth of the ETF market 
in Canada. " 
Peter Mansbridge, chief correspondent of CBC News & anchor of "The National," 
will emcee the awards dinner. The evening will start with a networking 
cocktail reception, followed by the awards dinner and an after-party 
celebrating the launch of the 2013 Canadian Investment Guide, published by 
Investment Executive. Guests can also look forward to a silent auction 
benefitting charitable beneficiary MusiCounts and a scotch tasting at the 
cocktail reception and after-party. 
MusiCounts is a Canadian music-education charity associated with The Canadian 
Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the organization behind the nationally 
televised JUNO Awards. MusiCount's mission is to provide students with access 
to comprehensive music programs in Canadian schools. For the third year in a 
row, the proceeds from all submission-based awards will be donated to 
MusiCounts.
