Overall portfolio values, as well as portfolio constituents, can be made the subject of alerts.
You have one watchlist, and this shows you the number of items currently stored in the watchlist. Items stored here do not have holdings records, so this list simply monitors the price of items held, which can also be subject to alerts
This is designed to be a temporary collection of items selected by you for further analysis in the tools section. Items can be subsequently transferred from the Basket to the Watchlist or Portfolio.

The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows the drag on performance caused by operational expenses associated with a fund.
Expenses which are represented by this figure include payments to the manager, the trustee the custodian and their representatives. The figure also includes registration, regulatory, audit and legal fees, and the costs of distribution.
Performance fees, transaction costs, interest on borrowing, costs associated with derivatives, entry and exit fees and soft commissions are not included in the OCF calculation, and should be factored in separately by the investor.
The OCF is calculated by taking the sum of these expenses incurred in the last 12 months and dividing this by the average net assets of that class for the last 12 months.
Total Expense Ratio (TER) is a formula designed to show the ongoing costs to the investor associated with a fund, including some charges which are not factored into the annual management fee. In addition the fund’s annual fee, charges such as trading fees, audit and legal fees, and operational expenses are included in the TER, which is worked out by dividing the total cost of the fund by its total assets to arrive at a percentage.
Unlike the Ongoing Charges Figure, the TER takes into account performance fees. It does not include transaction costs paid to the custodian.
All prices in Pence Sterling (GBX) unless otherwise specified. Price total return performance figures are calculated on a bid price to bid price basis (mid to mid for OEICs) with net income (dividends) reinvested. Performance figures are shown in Sterling unless otherwise specified.
How on Earth is this guy managing to do so poorly? Surely if you blindfolded a chimpanzee and asked him to randomly draw shares out of a hat, the performance would pick up at some stage?
I may as well have sent my investment to the Nigerian e-mailer who wanted my bank details!
Another solid day yesterday for this fantastic fund. I wonder if this might be an opportunity to top up into Youtu...I mean, Blinkx after it got totalled for another 50% or more yesterday.
Markets have taken off. Where are your investments and our units Mr Manek - BOTTOM of the ALL the tables. Shame on you.
How do you improve your figures against your peers?Simple - Jump ship from the UK All Companies sector to Specialist! All of a sudden, the figures look moderate!
Is there really still £20m left in this fund?I must say, that some of the shares actually appear to have done quite well (Blinkx, Eros, etc), so I ask myself the question, how is the price continuing to suffer?I would encourage anyone still invested to look closely at the annual turnover of stock within the fund and then reach the sensible conclusion. How this fund retains regulation is beyond me.
Time to hang up your hat.
Mr Manek is bottom of every league table! Perhaps he could tell us via this forum what his plan to do better for his investors is or is he just living off the fund management fees?
What an absolute dog of a fund I hung on far too long but am so glad I finally saw sense and got out.Yet Mr Manek is still making good money from running a fund that my cat could beat.
how can I check what my investment is doing
It's doing badly. Trust me
Check the share price and multiply it by the number of shares you have!
Mr Manek how can you face your investors with a performance that be carried out by a 5 year old with a better outcome
Should be called Manek Shrink Fund. Growth is a misnomer. My investment of £14K is now worth £4K.
I invested in 2000 and have seen my savings depleted away. Blinkx the top holding has just delivered me 150% in the last 5 years so Mr Manek needs to realise we are not fools!
