David Kempton: 7 magnificent funds for a tough 2017
Our experienced investor columnist has his annual brainstorm with the Hawksmoor investment team and returns with some fund tips.
Sweet fund picks
The winner will be awarded a small bar of Toblerone and the loser a Brussels sprout.
I emulate Eddie Jones here, England’s rugby coach, who also manages a very successful team, and wards a chocolate bar to a player who has performed something outstanding in the game. I like this contrast to Premier League footballers who for similar feats are awarded thousand of pounds.
The rules of the game dictate that every fund choice must be a holding in either of the Vanbrugh or Distribution funds, both of which, as cautiously managed funds, have had outstanding years with exceptionally low volatility.
All the funds chosen in 2016 continue to offer value with good diversification benefits and remain holdings within the Hawksmoor funds, with the exception of Prusik Asia.
