Fund managers' favourite international shares

Research suggests fund managers' biggest bets outperform. That’s even true for managers of poorly performing funds, although at the Investors Chronicle, we’re only interested in the best of the best. 

Every week, we publish a list of the “best ideas” of top fund managers from one of seven sectors. This week it is the turn of international stocks.

Our fund managers’ best ideas tables constitute the three most overweight positions of a selection of top performing funds. The data is based on the funds’ most recent portfolio disclosures to Morningstar.
