Our view on the sector

UK investors need little introduction to America. It's the world's biggest stock market. But share prices of well-known companies react quickly to new information. We think this makes it difficult for fund managers to find opportunities missed by others and to consistently perform better than the broader market over the long term. The US economy is in reasonable health and its stock market has performed well since the 2008 financial crisis. We think the prospects of most US companies are now reflected in their share prices and there's little value available for investors. That said, some commentators think the region's world-class technology companies have the potential to increase profits which could justify share prices climbing higher. For broad exposure to the US stock market, we think a low-cost tracker fund could be considered. We think active fund managers have more potential to deliver strong performance by investing in higher-risk small and medium-sized US companies.
