Our selection of specialist funds looks at specific themes that aren’t covered by traditional funds. The six we've chosen include three funds, two exchange traded funds (ETFs) and one investment trust.
The themes are agriculture, mining, gold, financials and infrastructure but you’ll find these and more like water, clean energy and silver in the Citywire Selection specialist and commodities sectors.
Specialisation like this doesn’t necessarily contradict the investment mantra of diversification, diversification, diversification. Themes like agriculture and mining are bigger than companies and countries and because of their specific focus they should behave differently to other investments.
Two of these choices, the ETFs, don’t have managers, but they offer investors access to markets that most wouldn’t have contemplated if these funds didn’t exist. However most of our choices do have managers and we've chosen the ones we think are most likely to outperform in their chosen area.
