Shares - - TALKING POINT -

WITH LIT­ER­ALLY thou­sands of in­vest­ment op­tions it can be hard to know where to start.

We will now look at some ideas for a starter port­fo­lio to help get you think­ing about how to achieve broad-based mar­ket ex­po­sure, look­ing at funds which can beat the re­turns from the wider mar­ket, as well as get­ting ex­po­sure to bonds, al­ter­na­tive as­sets and com­modi­ties.

To come up with our model port­fo­lio we have drawn on the ex­per­tise of the Shares team and made use of AJ Bell’s Favourite funds list – a col­lec­tion of col­lec­tives which have been cu­rated by its ex­perts.

For the most part we have con­cen­trated on tra­di­tional funds for this ex­er­cise. But we’ve also in­cluded a sep­a­rate ar­ti­cle in this week’s is­sue of Shares which is packed full of low-cost ex­change-traded fund (ETF) ideas for in­ex­pe­ri­enced in­vestors.
