Choosing a ready made ISA portfolio

With each ready made portfolio, it is the investment team at your selected portfolio provider who have chosen the investments.

Each portfolio will typically have a set risk profile e.g. cautious, balanced, adventurous, and then will invest in assets that are aligned with the portfolio risk profile. The ISA portfolio provider’s documentation will clearly explain exactly where your money will be invested.

Depending on the type of ISA portfolio service offered:

  • The fund managers will then manage the investments on your behalf or
  • Having made the investment choices for you, it is up to you on how you “manage” the investments going forward

The investment experts at the portfolio provider may also monitor the make-up of the portfolio, and may consider changing it if market conditions alter, which might help mitigate the effects of falling stock markets.

For example, they might decide to have more exposure to one investment fund which they think is set to perform well, and to reduce their exposure to another fund.

However, you still need to make the initial decision as to which portfolio to choose.

When deciding which portfolio to invest in, you might decide to look at past performance records.

If you do, then please remember that past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.

How much can I pay into an ISA?

26th January 2021

Each tax year, there's a limit set by the government to the amount you can save and invest in ISAs: your “annual ISA allowance”. The allowances are intended to reward savers and encourage us to invest more to support our future retirements, without creating a tax haven that can be taken advantage of by very wealthy individuals who just want to avoid paying tax.
