Where will you invest in 2016?

At the end of each year, we are often asked for our outlook on assets classes for the coming 12 months and where we think investors will put their money. So, in November, we asked FundCalibre visitors to tell us in which funds they are most likely to invest in 2016.

70% of visitors to our website said that they are most likely to invest in equity funds next year, with just 11% choosing multi-asset funds, 8% preferring absolute return funds, 6% going for bond funds and 5% considering property funds.

2015 was a volatile year for equities around the world, with a number of stock markets hitting all-time highs in April before falling back again. The poll suggests that investors could be either investing for the long term and are unconcerned about short-term volatility, or they are more risk tolerant than many may imagine.

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
