Funds help diversify your portfolio as a fund manager buys and sells a mix of investments on your behalf.

Remember, the value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.

The details of our most popular funds are updated monthly, using the number of purchase deals placed by our Smart Investor customers during the calendar month.

You may be interested to see what other customers have done, however this may have limited value in making a decision on the investments that are most suitable for you. This is not a personal recommendation and should not be seen as independent advice.

Funds help diversify your portfolio as a fund manager buys and sells a mix of investments on your behalf. Most funds invest in a single asset class, although multi- asset funds hold a range of investments such as shares, bonds, property, commodities and more.

You should remember the investment goals you have set, and consider if an investment helps you build a diversified and balanced portfolio.
