6. FPXI @ $50.28 First Trust 2 International Equity Opportunities – tracks the IPOX International index

The IPOX International Index is a rules based market-cap weighted index that measures the performance of the 50 largest and typically most liquid companies that are domiciled outside the U.S. within the IPOX Global Composite Index.
The IPOX Global Composite Index is constructed and managed to provide a broad and objective view of global aftermarket performance of recent IPOs and spin-offs in both emerging and developed countries during their first 1000 trading days.
After applying initial screens, all eligible constituents generally must have at least six full days of trading in order to enter the index on each rebalance.
All constituents of the IPOX Global Composite Index are then ranked by market capitalisation and the 50 largest international companies are selected for the IPOX International Index. Constituent weights are capped at 10pc.

7. IETC @ $37.54 iShares Evolved US Technology – actively managed but follows a rules-based methodology, redefines the US market into “evolved” sectors by using artificial intelligence to scan through annual reports and identify groups of similar firms.

12. SOCL @ $41.62 Global X Social Media – the only ETF on the market that focuses on social media companies.

13. VUG @ $200.73 Vanguard Growth – a convenient way to match the performance of many of the largest US growth stocks.

14. WCLD @ $37.165 Wisdomtree Cloud Computing UCITS – tracks and index of US companies primarily focused on cloud software and services. Stocks are equal weighted in the index.

All the passively and actively managed ETFs and the investment trusts featured above, 14 from the existing QV portfolio and 14 newcomers, are featured here because I expect them to move higher. I have included brief details of the funds’ objectives and where available their largest holdings so you can select the ones that you find most appealing. There is considerable overlap between funds so it makes sense to take that into account when building your portfolio. All these funds are ideal for £-cost averaging programmes by which you invest a similar amount at regular intervals. There is a considerable focus on technology, e-commerce and healthcare because that is where the fastest growing companies are concentrated. In the case of funds which are not UCITS, you cannot buy the shares in the UK but you can buy CFDs through IG. This is a little more complicated but well worth the effort. IG will be very happy to explain how to do this. Contrary to popular belief CFDs do not need to be speculative and are ideal for long term investors.
