Healthcare Tracker Fund 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.

  • Fund Choice: Tracks FTSE World Index Healthcare
  • Invest From: £20 pm
  • Investment Options: The Fund aims to provide exposure to stock market investment but without all the risk attached to individual stock selection. This produces low tracking error and limited stock picking or ‘style’ risks. The Fund takes a pragmatic approach to trading on index changes and cash flow and has lower management fees than active funds. This Fund adds a more specialist investment in health and pharmaceuticals shares to an existing portfolio.

Why we like it: A low cost way of looking for capital growth growth from an investment in health, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology company shares as represented by the index. No initial charges. You can invest up to £20,000 this tax year, with a low minimum of £100 lump sum or £20 per month, and you can manage your account easily online.

Important: Please remember the value of your investment and any income from it may fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you invest.

Healthcare Tracker Fund ISAs

Index tracker investment funds have become increasingly popular due to increased awareness of investment costs associated with active managed funds over time which do not always perform better.

Why Invest In A Index Tracker Fund Within An ISA?

Some things to consider include:
  • Can I invest in a healthcare tracker fund - Yes you can. Healthcare tracker funds typically follow the FTSE World - Health Care Index which invests in company shares that are engaged in healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology activities.
  • What other investment sectors can I invest in a tracker fund - You can also buy tracker funds that follow UK, European, US and Far East indices.
  • Are there ethical tracker funds? - Some fund providers offer indices that track indices where companies are excluded that do not meet certain ethical and environmental guidelines. e.g. Legal & General Ethical Trust tracks the UK FTSE 350 excluding shares or companies that do not meet certain ethical standards.
  • Charges - The lower the better. the good news is that unlike managed funds most tracker funds have no initial or exit fees. For specialist tracker funds you may have to pay a bit more.
  • 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.
