Our view on the sector

UK investors need little introduction to America. It's the world's biggest stock market and is home to world-leading companies in almost every industry there is, from media and film, through to manufacturing and transportation. We think most diversified portfolios should have some exposure to the US market. But it's one of the most heavily researched in the world so share prices of well-known companies can react quickly to new information. We think this can make it more difficult for fund managers to find opportunities missed by others and to consistently perform better than the broader market over the long term. Many funds investing in the US aim to grow the value of your original investment, rather than pay a high level of income. Some focus on the largest companies in the market. Others look for opportunities amongst small and medium-sized companies, which may offer greater growth potential, but are higher risk.
