Portfolio+

Ready-made SIPP portfolios

Portfolio+ is not personal advice. If you are unsure if it is an appropriate service for you or which portfolio is suitable for your circumstances, contact us for advice. As the value of investments can fall as well as rise you should anticipate holding it for at least 5 years and not invest monies you may need before then. Tax rules can change and the benefits will depend on your circumstances.

Choose a ready-made SIPP

You can invest for income or growth and select from three pre-determined risk levels.

Open your SIPP

Once you have chosen a portfolio you can open your SIPP in less than 5 minutes.

Sit back and relax

You can leave the rest to our experts. We will rebalance the portfolio for you twice a year.

In which accounts can I invest?

New clients

You may invest in Portfolio+ within a Stocks & Shares ISA, SIPP or Fund & Share Account. If you wish to invest in a different account, you will need to open the account first, then return to this page to place your instruction to invest in HL Portfolio+.

You must be aged 18 or over to invest, with the exceptions of the SIPP where people aged less than 18 can invest with their guardian's approval.

Existing clients (logged in)

You may invest in Portfolio+ within the following accounts: Stocks & Shares ISA, Junior Stocks & Shares ISA, SIPP, Drawdown, Junior SIPP and Fund & Share Account or Vantage Group SIPP.

What is the tax position?

If you hold Portfolio+ within an ISA or a SIPP:

You do not have to pay income tax on any income or capital gains tax on any disposals.

If you hold Portfolio+ in a Fund & Share Account:

Income: Income received on the holdings (such as dividends and interest) will be subject to income tax. Income rolled up into your accumulation units is also taxable. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you will be required to include this income on your personal tax return. If you are a basic rate taxpayer, it is likely that most tax due will be collected at source. If you are required to fill in a tax return, even as a basic rate taxpayer, you should include this information.

Capital gains tax: Capital gains tax may be due on any disposals. This will depend on the amount of gain, and whether or not you have disposed of any other chargeable assets in the same tax year. Disposals may include, but are not limited to: sales of units (both where you sell holdings, or sales to raise funds to settle fees), sales for the purpose of rebalancing the portfolio biannually, transfers to others and gifts.

You should note that the above is guidance only and you should seek specialist tax advice from an accountant or tax adviser if you are unclear. You are responsible for ensuring that you correctly report and pay tax on your income or gains.

What are the annual charges?

Only the standard Vantage account charges and those of the underlying funds. There are no additional charges for HL Portfolio+ and no charge to rebalance the holdings.

The Vantage account charge is an administration charge to hold funds in the Vantage Service. Our charge is tiered within bands and will be 0.45% per annum on the first £250,000 of funds within each Vantage account, 0.25% per annum on the value of funds between £250,000 and £1m, 0.1% per annum on the value of funds between £1m and £2m, and no charge on the value of funds over £2m.

Like any fund, each HL Multi-Manager fund has an ongoing charge (OCF/TER). The ongoing charge (OCF/TER) for the portfolios are as follows as of 01/08/2016:

Portfolio name Ongoing charge (OCF/TEF)
Adventurous Income 1.35%
Balanced Income 1.34%
Conservative Income 1.34%
Adventurous Growth 1.45%
Balanced Growth 1.44%
Conservative Growth 1.38%

Please note - the ongoing charge (OCF/TER) will vary over time depend on the relative performance of the funds held within each portfolio.

Can I transfer to HL and invest in Portfolio+?

Yes - you can transfer an ISA, pension, or unwrapped funds and shares to Hargreaves Lansdown and invest in the Portfolio+ of your choice. You can instruct the transfer by completing one of our Portfolio+ transfer forms.

What is rebalancing and why is it important?

Rebalancing involves selling a little of what has done well, and reinvesting elsewhere - to help keep the portfolio on track to achieve its pre-determined objectives.

Left unchecked a portfolio will naturally increase exposure to the area that is performing best over any one period of time. This can have two negative impacts.

  1. The risk in the portfolio can tilt (for instance an ever increasing exposure to equities if they outperform fixed interest/bonds) meaning that an investor could end up with more or less exposure to the areas of the market than was originally set.

  2. Investment is cyclical in nature and asset types (shares, bonds etc.) come in and out of favour as do investment styles (high yield shares have historically performed well in tougher market environments but have lagged in periods of explosive market performance).

    A portfolio that is not rebalanced risks having maximum exposure to a style or area of investment just before it falls out of favour and minimum exposure just before it comes back into favour. Regular re-balancing helps investors to take advantage of the ebb and flow of investment fashion. Given the low cost of rebalancing it makes sense to keep portfolios in line with the investors' chosen mix of assets and associated risks.
