Horrendously expensive for...
All tracker funds, by definition, are similar. The reason why most outperform managed funds is their low charges.The reason the Virgin trackers do so badly is due to their very, very high charges - *four times* higher than similar funds run by HSBC, Fidelity, M&G, F&C etc. In fact the Virgin trackers are almost as expensive as some of the cheaper managed funds which makes them totally ineffective and hugely reduces the final return.
AVOID - and use a tracker with an AMC of around 0.25% pa and no initial charges. There are several to choose from.Exta words because it requires at least 120 words.
