Fund Search

View our single page fund fact sheets, providing impartial research and covering fund opinion, information on a fund’s characteristics, an in-depth explanation of how a fund might be used and our evaluation of a fund’s risk and SRRI score.

IA Overviews

See our IA Sector Overviews for help in understanding more about the composition of the Investment Association sectors, the different styles and structures that exist and the positioning of our featured funds within their respective IA sectors.


Events can alter our view of a fund or an asset manager. See our bulletins to find out how we have responded to an event and whether a fund’s status in The Adviser Centre has altered.

Adviser Guidance

See our ‘Guidance’ notes for our views on how to respond to important fund changes. Our ‘Monthly Viewpoint’ and other articles feature our wider views on markets and sectors.


See our blogs for on-going snippets of market information and analysis, plus comments from our research activities that we think you will find interesting and enlightening.
