WHAT TO INVEST IN?
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.
