Where will you invest in 2016?

Sam Slator 01/12/2015 in Multi-Asset

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 content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. 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. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
