FTSE 100 Index Tracker ISAs

Keep investing simple with ready made tracker funds.

Index tracker funds are a great choice for investors who are seeking well diversified investment at low cost.

An index tracker will seek to replicate a particular stock market by closely tracking performance. The fund will typically buy all the company shares in the index. This is different to actively managed funds where a fund manager tries to outperform the index.

  • Some providers have a simple interface with clear copy about each investment and its past performances. Make sure you find one that you find easy to use, helpful and clear

Over the last decade the costs of investing in tracker funds have come down considerably. It makes sense to shop around to find the right tracker fund for you.
