There’s no doubt 2019 was a cracking year to have your money in investment funds. Our of our five picks, even the worst performer grew more than 7% – and that was a property fund, rather than one investing in company shares and bonds.
Our top performing pick, Zurich international equity, grew by 29.7%.
Of course, 2019 was an exceptional year – and it’s the longer term that really counts. We’ve charted the five-year performance of our 2019 chosen funds below. As you can see, they have all turned in solid long-term growth. Even the lowest performer here is up over 26% over five years. Compare that to five years of rock-bottom interest rates in the bank!
