By ETF Watch - Jul 08, 2016

The end of the financial year gives us an opportunity to reflect on the year that has been. Fund managers use it as an opportunity to let the world know how they have performed over the last year and try to predict what the next year will bring.

Below we have listed the performance of all of the ETFs and LICs that we follow at ETF Watch. Only funds which were available on 1 July 2015 have been included. The results show that gold miners were the clear winner in FY16, and Oil and China were the losers. 80 funds returned a postive return for the year, with 93 returning a negative return, proof that FY16 will be a year to forget for many.

* Income yield has been calculated based on income divided by closing price on 30 June 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
