There are a lot of different investments out there, and finding the right ones for you can be tricky. Which is why we’ve developed a few ways to help you get started.
Choose a ready-made portfolio - a single fund aligned with how much risk you want to take, leaving the day to day investment decisions to a professional.
Investors’ money is pooled together and managed by a fund manager or a team of professionals who will invest in assets such as shares, bonds or property, in line with the fund’s objectives. Funds are usually priced daily, and any buying or selling is carried out at the next dealing point. Investing in funds helps you to diversify your investments to manage risk.
Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are passive investments which typically track and replicate the performance of a range of different indices (for example, the FTSE 100). They offer a high level of transparency as they declare their holdings daily. ETFs can be bought or sold on markets such as the London Stock Exchange.
Investment trusts are public listed companies which aim to make money by investing in shares, bonds, property or other assets. They have a board of directors who look after shareholder interests, and professional fund managers who make the day-to-day investment decisions in line with the investment trust’s objectives. They can trade at a discount or premium to the value of the underlying assets and can borrow to invest which may increase risk.
Owning shares means you become a part-owner of a company. We give you access to a range of shares (traded in sterling) listed on the London Stock Exchange. Share prices may rise and fall throughout the day when the stock exchange is open. Share prices can be volatile and investing in individual companies can be risky.Hide investment types explained
