College Savings Plans Receive Morningstar's Highest Ranking

Morningstar's ratings of the 64 largest U.S. 529 plans are based on five factors:

Strategy and investment process,
Funds' investment performance,
Manager skill,
Administrator's stewardship practices, and
Value compared to peers.

In Morningstar's 2012 annual review of 529 plans, the T. Rowe Price College Savings Plan, offered by the Education Trust of Alaska, and the Maryland College Investment Plan were two of only four plans to receive a "Gold" rating. For the plans rated "Gold," "Morningstar has the highest conviction in the plan's ability to serve college savers over the long term." The report also mentions T. Rowe Price's "top-notch investments" and that the plans have been industry leaders for several years running because they offer "high-quality active strategies at a reasonable price."

Plans were then assigned forward-looking ratings of "Gold," "Silver," "Bronze," "Neutral," and "Negative." 22 of the industry's smallest plans were not rated.

Please note that a 529 plan's disclosure document includes investment objectives, risks, fees, expenses, and other information that you should read and consider carefully before investing. You should compare these plans with any 529 college savings plan offered by your home state or your beneficiary's home state. Before investing, consider any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in the home state's plan.
