Funds Research

Find the right fund for you with research and tools that make your decisions easier.

Funds research

There are more than 2,000 funds on our Funds Market. They invest in many different companies, in markets all around the world. Our research and tools can help you find the funds that fit your financial goals.

Remember, that no matter how much research you do, or which fund you choose, your investment isn’t guaranteed. The value of funds can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invested. Always seek independent advice if you’re unsure whether an investment is right for you. 

How well – or badly – an investment has performed previously invariably features very prominently in investment research material. However, you should always bear in mind that past performance is not an indicator of how well a fund, or any investment might perform in the future.

Fund factsheets

Our fund factsheets are an essential guide to each fund. They include a summary of the fund’s objectives and past performance, details of the fund’s holdings, and a profile of the fund manager. You’ll also find the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) on the fact sheet – you must read this before investing in a fund. Our How to read a fund factsheet is there to help you make the most of all this information.

Fund search – use this advanced tool to check detailed information including fund holdings, objectives and pricing. Once you’ve refined your selection, compare the performance of your short list of funds (but bear in mind that past performance is not a guide to what could happen in the future) and review the fund factsheets to check your chosen funds fit with your goals.
