None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.

Five Tips When Comparing Investment Funds

Five Tips When Comparing Investment Funds

When you compare investments, it’s wise to choose your investment funds carefully, based not only on their performance, but also on their reputation and stability. Consider these tips:

·      Avoid load funds when possible, as these usually force you to pay a hefty commission. No-load funds, their opposite, come with no charges, and make for more affordable investments for starters. When you compare investments, always look for sales charges.

·      Be prepared to pay a considerable minimum. Every good fund has a minimum required investment, and sometimes this can be quite substantial. Typically, the better the fund, the higher the minimum investment required. Don’t try to avoid the minimum, but rather be prepared for it.

·      Invest in established mutual-fund companies. Unfortunately, despite plenty of regulations from the UK government, not all mutual funds in the UK are safe for the average investors. And it’s often those funds that look the most promising which are the most vulnerable and can easily collapse. CTFM can help you discover strong funds.

·      Index funds can be a good choice for investing in stocks, because of their low costs and high performance. Managed funds, on the other hand, are in many ways safer, but at the moment not many managed funds offer high performance in the long run.

·      Consider carefully the expense ratios. Some funds in the UK charge less than 1% in expenses, but others charge 2% or more. It’s usually the most attractive funds that charge the higher expenses. Before committing yourself to any such fund do the maths to make sure the high expense ratios don’t defeat the other benefits the fund might offer.

In conclusion, always compare investments carefully, preferably using a specialised resource that will guide your decisions and provide you with unbiased results.
