Of the 30 funds in August's BOTB, 21 funds have retained their place in September's selection, which again is higher than normal and reflects a relatively strong performance during August. The chart below shows the average performance of the BOTB during August (the red line) against a benchmark that is calculated using the respective sector averages for each fund in the BOTB and assuming the same asset mix (the green line).
