3 Best Performing Funds Since the FTSE 100 Peak in 2007

A decade ago, in June 2007, the FTSE 100 reached 6,732. A year later the global recession hit. Which UK equity funds have performed best over the last decade?

A decade ago, in June 2007, the FTSE 100 reached 6,732. This was to be the peak level before the global financial crisis destroyed value for shareholders across the world. Fast forward, 10 years later and today it is trading at 7,570, up 12% from the level a decade ago.

FTSE 250, the index that tracks the 101st to the 250th largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange, is up nearly 70% to 20,026 today while FTSE small-cap index is up around 40% to 5,664.

But these rallies have hardly been smooth sailing. Along the way there have been significant bumps in the road – by March 2008 the FTSE 100 had bottomed out at 3,531, losing 48% of its value.
