Select 50 - our experts' favourite funds

Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Select 50 is not a personal recommendation to buy funds. Equally, if a fund you own is not on Select 50, we’re not recommending you sell it. You must ensure that any fund you choose to invest in is suitable for your own personal circumstances. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to an authorised financial adviser.

Expert recommendations to help you decide

With thousands of funds to choose from, building your portfolio can be overwhelming: Select 50 can help you narrow it down.

This list represents the highest-conviction (or favourite) picks of our expert analysts. These are the funds they believe have the most potential to outperform in their chosen area of the market. 

Our Select 50 predominantly features actively managed funds. However, in some specific cases passively managed funds are also included.

Select 50 in the making

To decide the final 50, we use a robust two-stage process.

A thorough approach
Locking-in great value

Discounts on Select 50 funds could come in the form of a rebate from the fund manager or lower annual management charges (AMC). If you receive a rebate outside of an ISA or Pension (SIPP), any rebates you receive are potentially liable to income tax at your marginal tax rate. You must ensure that any fund you choose to invest in is suitable for your own personal circumstances.
