Sector Average Performance

A key way that the investment industry, fund selectors and distributors use our sector framework is to compare performance.

The Investment Association does not actually produce sector indices as we do not collect any performance data, however, you can find limited IA sector average performance data on our website.

Morningstar provides this sector average data to the IA but a number of data vendors collect performance data to create ranking tables and calculate sector averages based on a continually updated fund list of all funds classified to IA sectors that we provide.

Separately, we have published guidance for our members on the use of IA sectors as benchmarks that can be found here.
