The best performing UK equity funds in 2016 are top of the pile because they hold mining stocks, according to data from Morningstar Direct.

Standard Life Investments UK Equity Recovery is the best performing fund within the UK equity fund space year to date, gaining 39%. The fund’s top performance is largely due to its mining and natural resources holdings which have rallied significantly this year.

The fund’s largest two holdings are miners Glencore (GLEN), which gained 198.7% year to date and Anglo American (AAL) that rose 298.4% year to date, of which each consists 5.8% of the portfolio.
