Spot the Dog has been exposing badly performing funds since it launched in 1994. Our expert research team scrutinises funds from all sectors, identifying constant poor performers and highlighting best-of-breed alternatives in Spot the Dog.

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 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:

  • Which funds came first at the dog show and avoided the pound this time?
  • We found a whimpering 119 dog funds – dog-gone it…
  • Someone has to be ‘top dog’. Who has won the unfortunate accolade?
  • There are a lot of aggressive Chihuahuas in there this time, with the average fund coming in at £154 million
