Purpose: Determine whether sector funds risk has any impact on the return. Also if there are any differences between sectors depending if they are affected by the economic situation or not. The study target is private investors who want a deeper understanding for sector funds regarding the different variables you have to consider before an investment.

The qualitative data is based on interviews and the quantitative data is based on statistics. To estimate if there is any connection regarding risk and return a regression analysis has been formed.

Conclusion: The study shows that there is a connection between risk and return for sector funds, but that the connection is not significant. Investing in sector funds is not a long term investment, but one should distinguish between sectors that are cyclically sensitive and sectors that are not sensitive cyclically and therefore investing over various economic cycles.
