Track the market

Index-tracking funds have been a popular choice with investors over many years. Instead of having a fund manager pick where to invest, they simply track a stock market index, for example the FTSE 100 Index.

So if the index goes up, so does the value of the fund. If the index goes down, the fund follows.

It is a good idea to diversify your investments within your portfolio, and this is where our selection of track the market funds can help. The selection is made up of our core set of index-tracking funds based on geographic location.

If you choose to invest in a track the market fund, you will be investing for growth, and any income paid out by the shares held will be reinvested to increase the value of your investment.

If you would prefer to invest for income, you can select from our full set of index-tracking funds through our full range of funds.

To help you decide we've put together a short guide, which explains the difference between investing for income and investing for growth.
