interactive investor shares former Money Observer full listings of fund, investment trust and ETF data.

Following the closure of Money Observer magazine, interactive investor has transferred the most-popular content to its website, including the data pages that were published in the magazine.

You can access this data in PDF format by clicking on the links below. Explanatory footnotes are at the bottom of this page.

The data, provided by Morningstar, will be published mid-month and dated to the start of the month – 1 September in this case.

The data is also available via our Fund, Trust and ETF hubs, and it will appear in the Funds and Trusts newsletter sent every Sunday. You can sign up for that here.

Remember that each fund is unique and hence exposed to different levels of risk. Some are relatively low risk, whilst others can be very risky and those will only be appropriate for more sophisticated investors.

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any financial instrument or product, or to adopt any investment strategy as it is not provided based on an assessment of your investing knowledge and experience, your financial situation or your investment objectives. The value of your investments, and the income derived from them, may go down as well as up. You may not get back all the money that you invest.
