11 funds from last month's 29 Best of the Best Selection regained their position in December's shortlist. November was a tough month for investors with the average multi-asset fund down 2% and it was a rare occasion as the 80-20 Investor Best of the Best Selection (BOTB) underperformed falling 4%.

Ultimately unless you had been 100% invested in US equities (or stayed in cash) you would have lost money as an investor during November.
