Superior returns from managing your own funds

ShareMaestro is the ideal tool for managing your own funds. Using ShareMaestro FTSE 250 valuations to switch between FTSE 250 spread bets and cash in the FTSE 250 spread trading strategy, you could have achieved a significantly higher annual return (up to 55.1 %) than the best-performing commercial managed UK Equity fund in the last decade.

If you had a lower risk appetite and had used the ShareMaestro strategy to switch between FTSE 250 ETF investment and cash, you would have achieved a compound annual return of 14.3% over the last decade - significantly more than the best FTSE 250 Tracker.
