With investment, your capital is at risk.
What is Spot the Dog?
Far from being a Crufts-like showcase of top dogs, Spot the Dog lists the bad mutts of the fund management industry. It uses statistical fund performance data to identify funds that have consistently performed badly compared to their benchmark.
It doesn’t win us any points with fund managers, but as you might have money stagnating in funds with abysmal performance records, we believe you have a right to know which funds those are.
In the latest edition of Spot the Dog:
The number of dog funds rose from 44 to 56 and, the assets in those misbehaving mutts increased to £46.2bn from just £19.1bn
This time the global sector had more than its fair share of these errant hounds, accounting for around three-quarters of the total assets
Discover whether your funds are in the dog house – and what you should do about it. There is no reason to stick with a pawful performer
We highlight the great danes of the fund industry – those dog funds with more than £1bn of savers’ cash
