We are launching the new, simple way to start investing

Ready-made Portfolios are investing made easy. You don’t need the time nor the know-how to open one: instead, you pick a Portfolio that suits your goals and let our experts handle investing for you.

The investment equivalent of a popular takeaway

What makes Ready-made Portfolios so easy?

  • Takeaways are popular because you get to eat your favourite meal without having to buy the ingredients and do the cooking yourself
  • With a Ready-made Portfolio, instead of choosing a range of investments with the aim of creating a successful investment portfolio, you just order one that our experts have put together already
  • Where they differ from a takeaway is that our experts’ involvement with the Portfolio doesn’t end on delivery. They’ll look after it, making sure that your money is always invested in line with our top ideas

Our brand new guide to Ready-made Portfolios explains all. You’ll get all the information you need to open a Ready-made Portfolio, as well as a rundown of each portfolio and how they suit different investment objectives. Download it here today.

It’s quick to start investing

Open a Ready-made Portfolio in an ISA, Junior ISA, SIPP or general investment account.

  • It doesn’t take you long to get started. You can begin from as little as £500
  • Open an ISA and make the most of your £15,240 tax-efficient allowance. A SIPP (Self-invested Personal Pension) lets you take control of your retirement savings, a Junior ISA gives you a £4,080 allowance to save for a child and an investment account is a simple and efficient place to hold your investments
  • You’ll be able to choose the Portfolio that suits you, whether it’s the adventurous ‘Aggressive Growth,’ the lower-risk ‘Defensive’ or the Portfolio built to create an income for you

The value of your investment and the income derived from it can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to the future. Prevailing tax rates and reliefs are dependent on your individual circumstances and are subject to change. This does not constitute personal advice. Different funds carry varying levels of risk depending on the geographical region and industry sector in which they invest. You should make yourself aware of these specific risks prior to investing. SIPPs are not suitable for everyone. If you don’t want to invest across different asset classes or don’t think you will make use of the investment choices that SIPPs give you then a SIPP might not be right for you. Self-directed investors should regularly review their SIPP portfolio, or seek professional advice, to ensure that the underlying investments remain in line with their pension objectives. Ready-made Portfolios like ours are offered by many fund managers. You may also hear them referred to as multi-asset funds. The Portfolios within our range are called Tilney Bestinvest Multi-asset Portfolios and are administered by Investment Fund Services Limited (IFSL), a subsidiary of Marlborough, one of Europe’s leading financial groups.
