Wealth 150 - Our favourite funds in each sector

The Wealth 150 is a list of our favourite funds for new investment in the main sectors. It is the product of rigorous mathematical analysis, combined with thousands of hours of interviews with leading fund managers, to ensure we only bring the very best funds to our clients' attention.

If a fund is not within our Wealth 150 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell. However, if you're thinking of adding to your investments we believe these are superior alternatives.

The Wealth 150 is designed for people who would like to choose their own funds. It doesn't constitute a personal recommendation. If you have any doubts as to the suitability of an investment for your circumstances please contact us for advice. The value of investments can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest.

Wealth 150 Plus These are Wealth 150+ funds where we have negotiated super low charges for our clients.

Funds managed with the aim of delivering positive returns in any market conditions, but returns are not guaranteed.

Funds in this sector may aim to achieve a return that is more demanding than a "greater than zero after fees objective."

Funds in this sector must clearly state the timeframe over which they aim to meet their stated objective to allow the IMA and investors to make a distinction between funds on this basis. The timeframe must not be longer than three years.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 6 June 2013.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in Asia Pacific equities and exclude Japanese securities.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets directly or indirectly in equities of the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. Funds may invest in one or more of the countries.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in European equities and exclude UK securities.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

The funds in this sector are expected to have a range of different investments. However, the fund manager has significant flexibility over what to invest in. There is no minimum or maximum requirement for investment in company shares (equities) and there is scope for funds to have a high proportion of shares.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 18 January 2012.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in Sterling denominated (or hedged back to Sterling), BBB minus or above corporate bond securities (as measured by Standard & Poors or an equivalent external rating agency). This excludes convertibles, preference shares and permanent interest bearing shares (PIBS).

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in Sterling denominated (or hedged back to Sterling) fixed interest securities and at least 50% of their assets in below BBB minus fixed interest securities (as measured by Standard & Poors or an equivalent external rating agency), including convertibles, preference shares and permanent interest bearing shares (PIBS).

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in Sterling denominated (or hedged back to Sterling) fixed interest securities. This excludes convertibles, preference shares and permanent interest bearing shares (PIBS). At any point in time the asset allocation of these funds could theoretically place the fund in one of the other Fixed Interest sectors. The funds will remain in this sector on these occasions since it is the Manager's stated intention to retain the right to invest across the Sterling fixed interest credit risk spectrum.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets globally in equities. Funds must be diversified by geographic region.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in fixed interest securities. All funds which contain more than 80% fixed interest investments are to be classified under this heading regardless of the fact that they may have more than 80% in a particular geographic sector, unless that geographic area is the UK, when the fund should be classified under the relevant UK (Sterling) heading.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest 80% or more of their assets in emerging market equities as defined by the relevant FTSE or MSCI Global Emerging Markets index.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets globally in equities. Funds must be diversified by geographical region and intend to achieve a historic yield on the distributable income in excess of 110% of the MSCI World Index yield at the fund's year end.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 18 January 2012.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in Japanese equities.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds in this sector are required to have a range of different investments. The fund must have between 20% and 60% invested in company shares (equities). At least 30% of the fund must be in fixed income investments (for example, corporate and Government bonds) and/or "cash" investments. "Cash" can include investments such as current account cash, short-term fixed income investments and certificates of deposit.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 18 January 2012.

Funds in this sector are required to have a range of different investments. However, there is scope for funds to have a high proportion in company shares (equities). The fund must have between 40% and 85% invested in company shares.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 18 January 2012.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in North American equities.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest a least 80% of their assets in North American equities of companies which form the bottom 20% by market capitalisation.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 14 February 2012.

Funds which are only available for use in a personal pension plan or FSAVC (Free Standing Additional Voluntary Contribution) scheme.

Present arrangements for unit trust personal pension schemes require providers to set up separate personal pension unit trust under an overall tax sheltered umbrella. These funds then in turn invest in the group's equivalent mainstream trusts. Pension funds are not to be confused with "Exempt" funds which are flagged separately.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which predominantly invest in property. In order to invest "predominantly" in property, funds should either:

  • Invest at least 60% of their assets directly in property; or
  • Invest at least 80% of their assets in property securities; or
  • When their direct property holdings fall below the 60% threshold for a period of more than six months, invest sufficient of the balance of their assets in property securities to ensure that at least 80% of the fund is invested in property, whereupon it becomes a hybrid fund.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in technology and telecommunications sectors as defined by major index providers.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% of their assets in UK equities which have a primary objective of achieving capital growth.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Funds which invest at least 80% in UK equities and which intend to achieve a historic yield on the distributable income in excess of 110% of the FTSE All Share yield at the fund's year end.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.

Definition from the Investment Management Association (IMA) - 4 April 2011.
