In this report, we analysed the performance of each fund that Nutmeg use to construct their portfolios.
We also compare the performance of all 35 of their portfolios alongside both our model portfolios and the 10 top performing portfolios managed by Yodelar investments.
Our analysis identifies that a number of funds used by Nutmeg have consistently struggled for competitive performance within their sectors, and their range of fully managed, fixed allocation, and socially responsible portfolios have all returned comparatively low growth.
10 Best North American funds
The North American sector is an important asset class that is likely to form an integral part of many mid to higher risk investment portfolios.
Over the past 10 years, U.S equities have enjoyed one of the longest bull markets in history but a difficult last quarter in 2018 led many to believe it was the end of the good times for the region. But in the first 6 months of 2019, North American funds delivered the highest growth figures of any other asset class.
The North America sector is one of the most competitive on the market, with 1,126 funds (including all available share class options) classified within the IA North America and IA North American Smaller Companies sectors. Therefore selecting the most suitable funds in this asset class for your portfolio can be difficult for both investors and advisers.
In this report, we analysed the performance of all 1,126 funds within the IA North America and IA North American Smaller Companies sectors and feature 10 funds, that have consistently outperformed their competitors.
