Moira O'Neill, head of personal finance at interactive investor
Our selection process features seven key elements, all overseen by our investment committee.
The seven-stage process begins with an initial screening of the entire collective investment universe, followed by an overall assessment to ensure the funds and trusts offer good value for money for investors.
The performance of the funds and trusts is then analysed, along with risk profiling and additional qualitative research.
Once completed, the findings are then discussed among our analysts and investment experts, after which approved funds and trusts can be included within the Super 60.
The Super 60 will be monitored on an ongoing basis for any red flags, such as fund manager changes, underperformance or, for investment trusts, trading at a persistent premium, which will be communicated to our customers.
The list does aim to give an additional layer of guidance, identifying 'core', 'adventurous', 'small cap, 'income' and 'low cost' options.
Rated lists are often called 'buy lists', but it is actually an 'ideas list' - it is high conviction, best ideas, but it is up to customers to decide on timing.
