Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell. However, if you are thinking of adding to your investments we believe Wealth 50 funds are superior alternatives. View funds on the Wealth 50 »

Our view on the sector

Technology is behind almost everything we do. There will be significant winners, like Google and Amazon, large companies that fall from grace like Blackberry and Nokia, unproven companies surrounded by hype, like Uber, and smaller, speculative start-up companies that could blossom or fail altogether. Technology is an exciting sector with many interesting companies, but investing in a single area is higher-risk and a long-term investment approach is essential. A few large companies can also dominate the sector. Most technology funds invest heavily in the US which remains a global technology hub.
