Locally the S&PASX 200 (ASX:XJO) fell 4.13% in the 2016 financial year (FY16) to 5,233.375, as the recent increases from March to May weren’t sufficient to compensate for the massive sell offs seen last August and at the start of this calendar year.
Shares in ASX 200 energy companies had the steepest decline in FY16 due to lower oil prices, but Australian gold miners chalked up gains as the price of the precious metal climbed. The healthcare sector had the biggest rise of 19%, followed by utilities, up 18%, while the energy sector was down 25% and financials fell by around 9%.
HarbourSide Capital Income Strategies performed well against their peers and the XJO despite the volatility.
