Past performance is not indicative of future results. Based on the most recent return data that we have available, we provide an overview of the best and worst-performing strategies for each category, taking into account both monthly and yearly results. Our analysis is based on proprietary composite data streams that we have compiled, but we must note that there is always the possibility of errors or inaccuracies in our calculations.
It is important to note that our rankings are not filtered for Asset Under Management, meaning that funds of any size can be included in our analysis. Our rankings are based solely on a simple return metric without adjusting for volatility, so some funds may have a higher risk profile than others.
