Which Funds Have Been Worst Hit By the Market Sell-off?

The FTSE 100 has lost £110 billion in just 10 days, alongside tumbling developed and emerging equity markets, fixed income prices and commodities. Which funds have been hit?

2016 has not been a profitable year so far for investors. Equities, bonds and commodities have all slumped together since the start of the year. But how large is the damage? And which funds have felt the brunt of the bear?

It is not surprising to see oil and mining stocks are the biggest losers of 2016 so far. Many commodities lost up to half their value last year, and it has continued into 2016. Therefore open and close-end funds that have direct exposure to the mining stocks are also greatly affected. Stocks across the banking sector have also struggled in the past fortnight – and those funds which hold large positions in the financials sector have been hit.

Miners are Having Difficult Time

For investors looking to take the leap into miners right now, it does seem like uncertain times – although there is some argument that now is the opportunity for long-term investor to get in at a low price.
