Prices & performance table

Link to the Prices & performance table»

The prices & performance tables provide unrestricted coverage of all UK Insurance Bonds. The tables can be filtered into various FE Trustnet sectors, enabling you to view any fund against its peer group. In addition to sector, the drop down menus at the top right of the page allow you to separate funds still open from those that have closed. Simply make your choice and click the Select button.

The shares listed under 'Default Units' are those considered to be the oldest shares of a fund, so as to show more of the fund's history when the chart icon is clicked on (shown next to the share name). To view all Insurance Bond shares available select 'All Units' from the drop down menu.

Customise Function

This enables you to modify your view of the tables. By clicking on the Customise button you can access the pop-up filter that allows you to add to and/or remove the data columns displayed. The data items already ticked on the pop-up filter reflect the current view. You can return to the FE Trustnet default view at any time by choosing the 'Default' button. To remove or add an item, simply click into the box next to the data description and select 'Go'. The Go button will enable you to view your data selection and return to the modified view as you move about the site. The prices and performance view is reset to the FE Trustnet default option when you leave the site.

To remove all data items click 'Select none'. Fund Name cannot be removed from the list. The Customise list includes data that was previously shown on fund factsheets only.

Column Headings

You can further edit your alphabetical view of the prices & performance pages by clicking on various column headings. The tables can be sorted by share name, group name or 1, 3 or 5 year price performance.

Rank

This column is shown to provide you with a quick reference to where you are within any given prices & performance table and how a fund ranks within the universe shown i.e. a particular fund might be 6th out of 316 funds (the total number of funds is listed at the top of the table) on a 1 year price performance sorting. This number is also particularly useful in the case of long tables where only some entries can be seen on the screen at any one time or where the table is long enough to be split across more than one page.

This icon acts as a link to standard performance charts for subscribing funds. Non-subscribing funds will link into a feedback form.

All charts that can be selected have PERCENTAGE performance plots, in Sterling terms, and are rebased. They do NOT show actual values.
