As a group it has a better performance over one year than any other and is second among all the groups over three years. Its global and international funds have been outstanding with its global equity growth and US, Japanese and European funds all being at or near the top of their sectors over one, two and three years.This is an extraordinary record compared with any other fund management group. I asked Robin Geffen which of his funds might perform best over the next year. He recommended the Neptune global equity fund which is up 75 per cent over three years. He chose this because the fund gives him maximum flexibility as there are only a few good value shares at any one time in any of the world’s stock markets. His out-performance has been driven by focused stock-picking and intelligent global sector allocation. The fund is overweight in the oil and energy sectors as well as natural resources, which have contributed to the overall returns. His stock-picking in Europe has also been outstanding. In the future he sees companies supplying energy needs outside the oil and gas industries as being a good way forward. These include coal mining shares and builders of nuclear power stations. I believe that for growth investors who wish to spread their funds throughout different geographical areas, this portfolio will again prove to be among the top-performing unit trusts over the next year or two.
