Re: Parents’ Retirement Fund

I don't like it that much - loads of overlap in the UK holdings and a whole bunch of high yield, which is rather niche.

Re: Investment for wife

Perhaps you could go direct to L&G and get one of their Multi index funds? I don't think they have any charges apart from the ones of the funds themselves. (About 0.5%.)

Obviously you're limited to their products, but that's probably ok.

2) DD is a week or so before the trade date.
3) £1.50 (It's still free for OEICs/UTs)
4) You set the DD for whatever [more]

Re: Remortgage or new mortgage for new home

Are you sure you want to be a BTL landlord? It's probably a terrible idea. There are better ways of gaining a retirement income.

I'm not sure of the rules if you mortgage your own house as to whether you can claim the interest against [more]

Re: Any thoughts on this IT Porfolio

I quite like some of it, though you haven't explained your aim ("retirement pot" is not very detailed), reasoning, or how it fits in with the other 2/3 of your portfolio (just saying they are passives is not enough! I assume the other 2/3 [more]

Re: portfolio construction views

Yes, while her final portfolio was a bit different and simpler from the original hypothetical one I put forward, (with various complications like lump sums being delayed and plans changing) it has done rather well. BIOG, BRSC, ASL, SMT & FCS have [more]

Re: First-time buyers in London need...£70,

I really have no objection to be quoted back where I've read matters wrongly.

Re: Hansa Trust reforms

I've held HANA for a couple of years and like its low correlation (which means one has to put up with it going the wrong direction entirely).

I think it's a bargain at its enormous discount, which may narrow somewhat as recent performance [more]

Re: TD Direct Investing have locked me out

I don't see how TD are being unreasonable here:
