morningstar-logoMorningstar, Inc., a leading provider of independent investment research, announced last month that the U.S. Department of Defense has entered into an agreement with Morningstar to offer its proprietary investment research and tools for free to all military service personnel and their families worldwide. Members of the U.S. Navy have been using the service since 2002, but this agreement extends access to the entire Department of Defense network, including the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Coast Guard.

The online database, Morningstar® Investment Research Center, features research and analytical tools from Morningstar’s popular retail Web site, and Morningstar.com®.  The service will be available to approximately 6.5 million Department of Defense employees and their families.

Military personnel will have access to:

• In-depth data reports on nearly 9,500 stocks, 24,000 mutual funds, and 800 exchange-traded funds.
• Proprietary, independent Morningstar analyst reports on 1,800 stocks, 1,700 mutual funds, and 350 exchange-traded funds.
• Evaluation tools, including the Morningstar Ratingâ„¢ for funds, stocks, and exchange-traded funds, the Morningstar Style Boxâ„¢, and Morningstar Stewardship GradeSM.
• Screening and portfolio tools.
• An online classroom that provides educational courses on basic investing concepts.

Morningstar Investment Research Center will allow Department of Defense employees to take advantage of numerous Morningstar features from most military base libraries and all military service portals, which include Military OneSource, Army OneSource, Army Knowledge Online (AKO), Navy Knowledge Online (NKO), and My AF Portal.
