Top 100 Funds

There are 2,500 open-ended funds available for sale in the UK, plus another 400 or so investment trusts. The choice is daunting. That's where our Top 100 Funds comes in - we have done the work for you.

We are not remunerated for inclusion by the companies behind our Top 100 Funds. Our selections are completely independent. See the introduction for more on how we chose the funds.

We have provided the TIDM codes for investment trusts, plus the ISIN codes for the open-ended funds. For consistency's sake, we have used the retail accumulation share classes where possible. However, if you are an income seeker you may want to buy income share classes. Or if your platform does not offer the share class I have specified you may want to use another one.

Bear in mind that it's very rare for a fund manager to beat a benchmark consistently across the investment cycle. Some funds in this list will race ahead when times are good, but fall sharply when markets take a tumble. Others will preserve value in tough times, but lag benchmarks in stock market booms. So think about the timing of your purchases. Buy into market dips and trim your holding in a fund after it has had a good performance run - or in the case of investment trusts is trading at a significant premium.
