Are you giving me advice?

No – Barclays Smart Investor does not provide personal investment advice.

Smart Investor is a self directed non-advised investment service that lets you pick and choose your own investments. If you’re new to investing, you can find a range of information on Smart Investor to help you build up your knowledge until you feel ready to start investing. For those who are already confident in building their own diversified portfolio, Smart Investor will let you manage your investments on an easy-to-use platform which allows you to seamlessly move money between your other Barclays accounts.

Smart Investor also features topical economic and market insight, investment ideas, and articles on some of the trends which are shaping the world today, as well as commentary from our experts. This information is there to provide some context around what’s happening in the wider industry but is not advice and shouldn’t be taken as any recommendation on how to manage your money or on what investments to select.

If you’re unsure about investing and making your own personal investment decisions, you should seek independent financial advice.
