Hargreaves Lansdown adds Neptune US opps to Wealth 150

Hargreaves Lansdown has added the Neptune US opportunities fund to its Wealth 150 range.

The fund, which is managed by Felix Wintle, has been a big success in the US market over the past five years having outperformed the S&P 500.

Analyst Stuart Goodwin says: “Felix Wintle is prepared to change his style to accommodate the current market conditions. Keen to take advantage of short term opportunities he is using 40 per cent of the portfolio for shorter term trading ideas. The remaining 60 per cent of the portfolio is used as a long term core.

“The success of this fund so far is partly down to Neptune and their group views. They were one of the first to realise banks were in trouble, a view taken across all of their funds that proved correct. They have made the right sector calls time and time again, a main reason why we have faith in their ability. In addition 75 per cent of the company is owned by staff and directors, a real incentive for sensible management and long term growth.”


Rediscover your belief

My portfolio has lost 30 per cent in the last 12 months. I am concerned that the market still has further to fall and would like to switch some of my funds into cash to enable me to sleep at night. What do you think I should do?
