Фонды FXUS и FXIT значительную часть 2021 года возглавляют рейтинг, because investments in US stocks in general and in the US IT sector in particular attract many investors. These funds have performed well in the past and include well-known stocks.. The same funds are among the top 5 funds of the Moscow Exchange in terms of net asset value.

The popularity of TRUR and TUSD perpetual portfolio funds is explained, among other things, the, that they are used in the Tinkoff Investment Bank.

Most of the funds on this list were launched several years ago.. The youngest of them, TSPX, работает с начала декабря 2020 of the year. Более молодые фонды — а за 2021 год появилось много биржевых ПИФов и ETF — have not yet been able to enter the top 10.
