Past performance is not indicative of future results.
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.
To be included in our rankings, funds must have reported returns for the current reporting month. This means that we may not have data on all funds in a given category, and our rankings should be considered within the context of the funds that we do have information on.
Overall, our analysis provides a useful starting point for investors who are looking to compare and evaluate different investment strategies. It is important to keep in mind that no single metric or ranking can capture all of the nuances and complexities of the investment landscape, and investors should conduct their due diligence and consult with financial professionals before making any investment decisions.
