What’s Hot? What’s Not? UK cracks on. US cracks up?
An extract from the January edition of the TopFunds Guide
Looking at the main asset classes it’s been a strong second half to 2019 for equity sectors, while bonds have been dull. This is a contrast to the end of 2018 when the majority of sector averages were negative.
UK Smaller Companies is the top performing sector, while just three sectors slip into negative territory for the last 6 months of 2019. Technology has continued to do well along with China, Asian and Emerging Markets while the US has started to flag by comparison.
