What would you like us to do with the funds you've selected
You can restrict your search to funds which are domiciled in a specific country, which may have implications for their tax status.
Selecting a geography allows you to choose funds which invest in a specific geographical region, or regions if you select more than one. The geography does not necessarily reflect the domicile of the fund, where it is legally based.
Select a specific management group, or groups, to narrow your search to funds managed by individual asset management businesses.
Investment Focus allows you to search for funds which invest in a specific industrial sector or sectors.
You can choose to view funds which invest only in a specific asset class or asset classes, allowing you to focus on a broad swathe of funds which invest specifically in equities, bonds, or commodities – for example.
FE Risk scores tell you how risky an investment is compared to the FTSE100. They do not show you how risky an investment is in absolute terms, but are a useful means to compare potential investments with this most widely known index.
FE’s way of measuring how successful funds have been in replicating their chosen benchmarks, based predominantly on tracking difference and tracking error. Funds are given between one and five Passive Crowns – five being the highest.
A passive fund can have one of the following replication methods:
Full Replication: A fund that employs full replication will buy every stock or share in the underlying index in order to exactly mimic its makeup. This is theoretically the most reliable way to replicate an index, however it employs a large amount of trading and therefore can take a lot of time, effort and expense to achieve. Due to this it is most suited for large liquid markets which have a manageable amount of companies.
Partial/Sampling: A fund that employs this method of replication buy a representative sample of the index’s holdings, rather than all the constituents. This is well suited to indices which include a large number of holdings for instance the MSCI World or where some companies are too illiquid to hold. The advantages are that transaction costs are kept lower, however because the fund’s holdings will differ from the index, tracking error is likely to be higher.
Synthetic Replication: A fund that employs this method will aim to replicate the index through the use of derivatives. This is typically achieved through the purchase of a swap contract usually from an investment bank (the counterparty) who agrees to pay the return of the index to the fund. Theoretically this means the tracking error should be zero. The risk is that the counterparty may be unable to honour its contract and the fund fails. To counteract this some counterparties post collateral to minimise this risk.
An index against which funds are compared.
You can narrow your search by peer groups of funds which are grouped together in sectors, based on similar investment strategies and objectives. Sectors may be defined by an industry body, like the IA, or by FE – which has its own custom sectors.

Volatility is a measure of risk which shows how the returns of a fund fluctuate relative to its average returns. The more returns fluctuate, the more likely you are to buy or sell during a peak or trough, so more volatile funds tend to be considered a riskier bet.
Sharpe Ratio is a measure which shows how much a fund has returned over and above the returns available from a risk free investment, ultimately showing you how much a fund has returned ‘per unit of risk’ taken.
Maximum loss shows the maximum a fund has lost between a single peak and trough, at any time during the period you’ve selected. Effectively it shows you the worst case scenario had you invested at the peak and sold at the trough during that time.
