And what can you do about it?
The number of seriously underperforming funds has increased by more than a quarter in the last six months according to Bestinvest’s latest Spot the Dog report.
These are funds which have underperformed their relevant indices over 3 consecutive12 month periods and by more than 5% over three years. Whilst that’s going on the Financial Advisers who put you in those funds and the Fund Managers are continuing to receive their fees.
It’s time this stopped. You worked hard for your money and it should be working hard for you.
Changing funds is not difficult. There are no tax implications if your money is in an ISA or pension plan. Online providers such as Hargreaves Lansdown offer fee-free transfers and may even offer a cash-back deal.
