Fundsmith Equity Income Fund Full Portfolio Breakdown

The Fundsmith Equity Income Fund has had a remarkable run since its inception in 2010. Over this time, it has produced gains of just over 188% or 19% per annum. This is simply phenomenal. It is no wonder they call the funds manager, Terry Smith,  the UK Warren Buffet. Terry Smith has done an amazing job and it is no wonder that it is only one of three mutual funds I am invested in.

The performance of fundsmith and its exceptional returns haven’t gone unnoticed and I have had a few readers contact me asking what individual stocks the fund holds. As such, I have done some research and found the majority of the portfolio which is below.
