The year has ended and the results are in.
February 16, 2022
Global indices had a good year. If your investment manager thinks you should be impressed by a 10% return this year, point out that the average equity index was up about 18% in 2021.
Less than 15% this year, was poor.
Hedge funds did even worse, and averaged gains of 8.7% from January to November, according to data provider HFR. That marks their third consecutive year of gains, and their 3rd successive year of underperforming the benchmark.
Tiger Global, one of the most successful hedge funds of all time, only managed 3.2% in 2021.
The best of the best disappointed: 3.2% for the year.
The rest averaged 8.7%.
Equity funds outperformed hedge funds, but 80% still underperformed when compared to the S&P500.
Even though most funds made money, almost all of them underperformed compared to global stock indices. Rather than paying your investment manager last year, you would have been better off sticking your capital in a TPP tracker!
So, the question we all want to know the answer to: How did The Portfolio Platform fare in 2021? And did our traders outperform the market once again?
In short, YES: the average return from our traders was a massive 61.8%.
That means, the average return for our investors was even better than the 58.8% they made in 2020.
Although every trader made money, and every investor made money, let’s now have a quick look at the top 5 spots on last year’s leader-board.
If you had any of these, you’ve had a very, very good year.
If you were disappointed with the performance of your own portfolio in 2021, maybe we can help. It might be that you hadn’t even realised your Wealth Manager has been underperforming. On the face of it, 15% sounds good, but is it good enough?
Please do get in touch with one of our directors here if you would like to know more about TPP and how you can make the same returns our traders do. You don’t have to do anything thanks to our ‘autotrading’ technology.
Our traders trade, and your portfolio automatically places the same trade. We do all the work, you make all the money. The answer is finally here. The Portfolio Platform was built by professional traders for you, the investor.
