Master portfolios

What are Master Portfolios?

  • Master Portfolios are designed to help you get started with investing
  • There are five ready-made portfolios depending on your aims and attitude to risk
  • The underlying funds are selected by our Head of Research, Mark Dampier, and run by the best fund managers in their field
  • You can tailor each portfolio by changing the percentage invested in each fund according to your own preferences

How do Master Portfolios work?

The portfolios are designed as a starting point, and while each fund is professionally managed, the overall responsibility for selecting and managing the portfolio rests with you. We will send you updates with our latest views on each of the component funds to help you with this.

The portfolios aren't advice - if you're unsure whether an investment is right for you, contact us for advice. All investments fall as well as rise in value - you could get back less than you invest. For this reason we suggest investing for a minimum of five years.

Choose your portfolio style

This aggressive portfolio aims to generate a high level of capital growth by focusing on riskier areas like emerging markets and smaller companies.
This medium-risk portfolio aims for a reasonable return with less volatility than more aggressive options.
This defensive portfolio aims for modest growth whilst minimising volatility, though it can still fall in value.
Children usually have a long investment horizon, so this portfolio focuses on riskier areas with greater growth potential.
This income portfolio is designed to produce a good level of income with the potential to grow and keep pace with inflation.

How much do you want to invest?

We amend the number of funds according to the amount you want to invest. This helps to ensure that you have a well-diversified portfolio.
