Master portfolios to beat Hargreaves Lansdown’s

(Back to Adventurous/UK&USA)

Adventurous / UK & USA model portfolio / Whole of market

This master portfolio is for ‘Adventurous’ UK investors (those prepared to risk losing value in the hope of getting higher long term returns), wanting to invest in a diversified portfolio across the UK & USA markets, without any restrictions.

This ready-made investment portfolio contains 3 ETFs:

IUSA: iShares S&P 500 ETF60%2%0.07%
IGLT: iShares UK Gilts ETF20%1%0.07%

This portfolio has 80% equities, split 3:1 USA: UK. This represents slightly more investment in the UK’s FTSE than the global average. These ETFs track the biggest companies in the index – which constitute over 80% of the total stock market. If you prefer to include some of the smaller companies then consider MIDD (the UK FTSE-250) and its US equivalent.

The bond portion of this portfolio is invested into UK Government bonds.

      1. Neat tool! My broker is quite expensive for fx which is a pity for SUWS / SUSW when so many other things are chewing away at returns.
