Our view on the sector

Funds in this sector generally try to make a positive return in any market condition. But they go about it in different ways. Some focus on one type of asset, such as shares or bonds, while others invest in a variety of different assets. Some stick to one geographical area, like the UK or Europe, while others invest globally. Some also take 'short' positions, which can allow the fund to benefit from falling prices. It can be difficult to compare funds in this sector because they're so different, so each one should be considered on its own merits. Some have been more volatile than others, some have sheltered investors' money well but not done as well when markets have risen, while others have performed poorly. Like any investment, there's still a degree of risk and they're not guaranteed to make money.
