Aaron guide picks high-risk fundsto prosper

IFA David Aaron Partnership has published a guide recommending 20

high-risk unit trusts it believes will come up trumps within five years.

The 75-page guide highlights volatile funds the IFA believes will show

“outstanding returns” over three to five years.

Most of the trusts are off their highs.

The trusts are from several sectors, including technology, the Far East,

smaller companies and emerging markets.

Senior partner David Aaron says: “All our recommended trusts with a

five-year record or more have shown returns of more than 100 per cent over

the five-year period with the exception of the Far Eastern trusts which we

feel are much undervalued.

“With many good technology stocks at less thanone-third their highs, we

feel now is an excellent time to invest in them.”
