Index tracker funds aim to mirror the performance of an index. An index is a basket of shares that represents the performance of a stock market.

The FTSE 100 Index, for example, tracks the performance of the 100 largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. There are a number of different indices tracking markets throughout the world, and there are even tracker funds which cover specialist sectors such as technology.

Index tracker funds generally look to own the same shares as an index, in the same proportions, and thereby track its performance. As there is no fund manager or analysts to pay, the annual management charges are generally low.

A tracker fund does not aim to beat the index, only track it. This style of fund management is also referred to as passive (as opposed to active fund management where mangers choose underlying investments they believe will outperform). If you prefer, please view the actively managed funds in the Wealth 50.
