The July issue of Money Observer focuses on our annual fund awards – the 40 winning and highly commended funds, across 15 leading sectors, that have proved their worth in terms of both performance and reliability. Money Observer readers prize the investments that not only deliver great returns in the good times but help to protect investors from the full market downturn when things get difficult, so we look for the choices with the best risk-adjusted returns over the past three years. It’s a measure of their success that so many of the 2018 award winners are returning for a second, third or even fourth year.
With an eye on the enduring hunt for income, we also take a closer look at the Dividend Kings – the 26 shares of the FTSE 100 that have increased their dividends every years for the past decade or more – and ask how sustainable these payouts are and whether it can ever make sense to invest in a stock on the basis of dividend alone.
Elsewhere, emerging markets are under the spotlight. First, Tom Bailey weighs up the considerable risks and potential returns of funds and trusts that invest in a single country – from heavyweights such as China or India to the likes of Vietnam and Thailand – and asks whether private investors should take such risks, while Sam Vecht of BlackRock Frontiers takes the Money Maker hot seat.
In the wake of Aviva’s plans to cancel its preference shares paying 8% we consider whether these high-paying investments have lost their appeal for investors. We also cast an eye over the emerging Innovative Finance Isa landscape and the opportunities IF Isas offer both for seasoned stock market investors to diversify and earn a good income and for newcomers to improve on their cash returns – provided they can stomach the risks entailed.
