If you are a fund or stock investor what a cracking year its been! Despite the fact trade wars, brexit and a bunch of other global uncertainties this year markets have done fantastic! Especially in comparison to 2018 which had two major corrections at the start and the end of the year destroying gains.
I end this year with an annualised return of 9.25%, which exceeded many of my expectations.
My top investments have been
Fidelity Funds Global Technology (25.68% annualised return)
JOHCM UK equity income (10.5% so far, no annualised as I haven’t been in it a year yet)
Axa Framlington Global Technology (18.74% annualised return)
My worst has been
Jupiter Absolute Return fund (-4.04% annualised)
Merian Asia Pacific (-0.23% annualised)
Baillie Gifford Japanese (-1.01% non annualised)
I’m hoping with china/America comming to a deal next year with Brexit finally coming to the beginning of an end there may be some more potential for growth. But world wide economies are slowing, how long can stimulus in the world markets keep it moving?
