15 income funds that are underperforming

Sanlam's twice yearly 'Income Study' of UK equity income funds has a black list, a grey list, and a white list. But which funds ended up in which list?

Sanlam has released the latest tranche of analysis in its Income Study - a 'quantitative assessment' that reviews and monitors the performance of all UK equity income funds over a six-month period.

The study, which has been running for over 30 years, categorises funds into a 'white list', a 'grey list', and 'black list'.

The white list features funds that have shown superior total returns.

Sanlam describes its grey list as 'a temporary home for a manager with an out-of-favour style or an early warning signal for a fund in decline.'

Meanwhile, the black list is for consistent underperformers and may indicate the need for remedial action. That is the list featured in this article.

Each slide shows a fund on the black list, its dividend yield at 31 December 2018, income after five years to 31 December 2018 based on a £100 investment, and total return for the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018.
