Spot the Dog. Helping you spot poor performers for 30 years

The effects of long-term underperformance can be devastating on your savings. Bestinvest’s Spot the Dog guide helps you find underperforming assets in your portfolio.

What is Spot the Dog?

Spot the Dog has been exposing badly performing funds since 1994. In doing so, not only has it encouraged hundreds of thousands of investors to keep a closer eye on their investments, but it has also pushed fund groups into taking action.

With investment, your capital is at risk. Past performance is not an indication of future performance.

In the latest edition of Spot the Dog:

  • The number of dog funds rose from 56 to 151, a 170% increase
  • We explain the reasons for this jump
  • The global sector has the highest tally of dog funds overall, with 49 included, doubling from 24 funds in mid-2023
