About Tracker Funds
fund investments track what's happening in the stock market, but
some keep up with things better than others. The job of a tracker
fund is to track the ups and downs of the stock market. Unlike its
actively managed counterpart, a tracker doesn't aim to beat the
stock market, but to follow it.
have been around for over a decade and their popularity continues
to grow, mainly because they are cheap: charges are up to two thirds
lower than on actively managed funds, yet they perform almost as
were just six funds in 1990 and there are now over 200 available
as unit trusts/Oeics, investment trusts, pensions and life insurance
funds. The majority of funds in the UK All Companies sector had
a low or acceptable tracking error rate and were essentially doing
their job and tracking well.
