An eclectic mix of funds make up the top 10, whilst precious metals and South America take a slide.
What’s Hot  
  • The top fund is surprisingly a UK All Companies fund, the Marlborough Multi-Cap Growth fund, up 7.85%
  • Global equities dominate the top performers, with a specialist bias
  • A stark contrast to July’s ‘low risk’ dominated table
  • All new entrants from July’s table, which was dominated by the UK Gilts
  • Two of the big biotech players make an appearance; AXA fund up 7.63% and Polar Capital up 7.32%
What’s Not
  • The dominance by funds in the Specialist sector across both tables highlight why our Dynamic Ratings must be taken with a pinch of salt for this sector
  • Chinese funds, hit by July’s regulatory changes, have recovered to escape the What’s Not table
  • All funds are either heavily invested in precious metals or South America
  • All of the bottom six funds have a precious metals focus, with Jupiter Gold and Silver having the worst month – down 7.48%
