What's Hot What's Not


What's Hot, What's NotJune’s top and bottom performing sectors almost perfectly mirror the best and worst funds throughout the month, which you can read here

What’s Hot

  • China had by far the best June out of any sector, up on average by 10.75%. Though over the past 12 months is still down over 17%
  • The closest sector, but still pretty far away from China’s performance, was the Healthcare sector, ended June up 2.35%
  • Three lower risk sectors make up the final spots, highlighting the continuing struggle of most mainstream stock markets around the world

What’s Not

  • In a similar tale to our funds edition, commodity-focussed sectors struggled in June, both the Latin America and Commodity/Natural Resources sectors taking the worst two spots (down 13.21% and 10.55% respectively)
  • Despite retail gas prices reaching record highs in the US earlier in June, supply fears have softened, causing overall prices to start falling and thus many oil-heavy funds seeing falling values
  • The UK Smaller Companies sector continues to struggle, down 8.48% in June and now down nearly 24% year to date
