why not both? why not put some money into a Vanguard fund, which are accessible to most peopleSo...After reading through some of the Investment information in the link SignalCalc provided (https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/banking/) I find myself wondering...
1) Do it with me platforms?
2) Do it for me platforms?
While I would like to be competent enough to go with the "Do it myself" platform, I just don't know enough to not be eaten by the big fish.
Anyone care to offer an opinion or a suggestion on the matter?
I reckon i'd be comfortable with medium to higher risk, if that helps you to form a suggestion.
I would also prefer to inform myself better on my investments and potential options, so that is leaning me a little more toward the "do it with me" platform... i think
It's not just about making money for me (though it is crucial), it's also about understanding the puzzle and being challenged.
www.vanguardinvestor.co.uk and then they choose the best option based on your risk profile and at the same time, put some into your own sharedealing/trading account. if you think you can beat their returns, give it a go whilst at least you know part of your investments are being managed by one of the worlds largest fund managers
some companies offer both options. AJBell are one of the better ones for this, they have funds they manage and also you have the option of your own. with Vanguard you only choose vanguard, but $4trillion funds you can't go far wrong
