Manage your own investments with a helping hand

Research to help you select your own investments

Important: Our Wealth 50 and Master Portfolios do not constitute personal advice. If you are unsure whether an investment is right for you, contact us for advice. All investments fall as well as rise in value and you could get back less than you invest.

There are over 2,500 funds available to private investors. While many will conduct their own research, others might need some extra help, so our research team have scoured the market to unearth what we believe are the best funds for new investment across the major sectors.

Our favourite funds for new investment

The Wealth 50 list highlights those funds we believe to be the best across the main investment sectors.

Our goal is to help you choose your own investments from those funds where we have complete confidence in the fund manager.

Our Wealth 50 is constantly reviewed against strict criteria and updated to ensure it includes only those that have delivered consistent outperformance.
