The ideal fund is one that consistently provides above average gains by taking below average risks. It is not always a straightforward job, as pure statistical analysis can overlook hidden dangers, and these are the seeds of a fund’s future volatility. Our analysis is a two part process.

Firstly we apply our statistical analysis (the objective test) to build a short list within a sector. Secondly we apply our subjective test, taking into account other matters based on years of experience, to narrow this down to the very best of the TopFunds.

There are a number of approaches to the asset and geographical split. Over many years we have seen a variety of reviews that, with the benefit of hindsight of the recent past, tell us you should have "more invested overseas", then "most invested in the UK", or "greater sums invested in the US". And computer models are increasingly used to create the chimera of a rational portfolio structure, but tell you nothing of the "accidents of history" and lack the input that only experienced practitioners can provide. For some consistency we apply a rule of thumb that the low risk element of your portfolio should be equal to your age. So if you’re aged 25 the low risk holdings would be 25%, and if you’re aged 75 they might be 75% of your total investments. It's as good a starting point as any.
