Our view on the sector

Technology is an exciting sector with many interesting companies and is behind almost everything we do. There have been some big winners in the sector, like Google and Amazon. But there has also been companies that have fallen from grace like Blackberry and Nokia as well as smaller, speculative start-up companies from emerging markets that could blossom or fail altogether. Investing in a single area is higher-risk and a long-term investment approach is essential. Most technology funds invest heavily in the US which remains a global technology hub.

Performance Analysis

The fund's tracked the FTSE World -Technology Index closely since it launched. A big part of this is down to the fund's low charges. As with all tracker funds though, the performance will almost always be slightly behind the index due to the charges.

Investment Philosophy

Tracker funds are one of the simplest ways to invest. They aim to match the performance of an index, rather than beat it. They usually do this by investing in every company in the index. This means they don't need analysts to research individual companies, which keeps costs to a minimum. If the fund's costs are low it's likely to track the index more closely.

Process and Portfolio Construction

Legal & General is one of the most conservative tracker fund managers. The fund invests in every company in the FTSE World -Technology Index and in the same proportion. This is called 'full replication' and gives it the best chance of tracking the index precisely. Legal & General don't lend shares to other companies. Other tracker managers do this to reduce costs, but it adds risk to the fund.
