2016 ETF and LIC Performance Table

ETF Watch - Jan 15, 2017

Below we have listed the performance of all of the ETFs and LICs that we follow at ETF Watch in the 2016 calendar year. Only funds which were available on 1 January 2016 have been included. An end of year share market rally saw 79% of funds with positive returns in 2016, well up from 46% in the 2016 Financial Year. A continual rebound in resources saw the leaderboard full of companies that focus on that sector, with China, Asia and some poorly performing LICs bringing up the rear of the field.

* Income yield has been calculated based on income divided by closing price on 31 December 2015. Total performance has been calculated by simply adding the performance and the yield (ignoring the timing of dividend payments). Whilst the franked component of income payments has been calculated, the income payment has not been grossed up by the franking credits. All performance is based on closing share prices rather than underlying Net Tangible Assets. As usual, past performance should not be used as an indication of possible future returns, and we recommend this data not be used to support investment decisions
