People have been saying as much since 17/11/2012 when I first mentioned the Fund on the forum. https://www.englishforum.ch/1719119-post39.html

Closing price on 15/11/2012 1.2732 €12.4649

Closing price 5/6/2020 491.97 €42.19

in increased 3.86 times, in € increased 3.385 times. You were a member back then, shame you did not join in on the ride
To be fair, their track record a couple years ago (or today for that matter) is quite a bit different from 6-8-10 years ago. The far-from-great progress of FEET (managed by the same team, with the same investment approach, but invests in different world regions and markets) supports the notion that one should want a multi-year track record before getting tooo excited.

That said Fundsmith's track record speaks for itself, and looks like it will be very difficult to beat.

Phil_MCR has invested in the UK fund directly, I have also but only as a transfer of an old PEP/ISA from 25 years ago.
Same, paid in from IB(London). Still, took unexpectedly long to get my first T(acc), multiple back-and-forth. The top-ups went smoothly.
