Our favourite managed funds

Looking for the best performing fund managers across Australian and international markets? We’ve done your homework for you.

Summary: Australian fund managers looking to our biggest companies have been dragged down by the performance of the banks and energy stocks in 2015. The best performing Australian fund managers avoided the big names and instead focused on companies able to generate growth regardless of broader macroeconomic conditions, as well as those ready to exploit technology in sectors undergoing change. International funds performed well when they took a high-conviction approach and focused on fewer quality stocks.

Key take out: When considering fund managers, look for philosophies that focus on fewer stocks and make decisions independently of the underlying benchmark – these were the major factors in funds that outperform.
