Everyday investors have an enormous number of funds and potential sources of advice vying for their attention. We are frequently asked by readers to help separate the wheat from the chaff, and so launched the Telegraph 25 list of our favourite funds in 2016.
But investors’ goals differ. We produced the Telegraph Income 10 earlier this year, but now turn our attention to growth. By this we mean funds that make income a secondary goal, if that, and focus instead on capital appreciation.
The list includes “value” funds – those that hold cheap, unloved stocks – as well as funds that focus on fast-growing companies.
This is not a top-10 ranking or a ready-made portfolio. It is a collection of funds we think stand out. To see how the list was compiled and how to use it, and detailed fund descriptions, visit telegraph.co.uk/go/growth10.
