Funds To Start Investing In For Long Term View?

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if I should start drip feeding monthly into an stocks isa about £200 per month. Can anyone recommended good funds for long term growth please? about 10 years.

as of last year I had 50k GBP in this one

started feeding it in 2002 :(

Although the chart looks pretty crappy I've probably made 5% over that time (obvoiusly a load more 12months ago). I'd say its a good call for the next 10years (I think I was paying around £400/month), stopped it feb 2007.

recently i've bought stocks like diagio & roche, they seem to have stable prices & should benefit from (imo) inflation to come.

(edit the chart is based in USD, so in GBP it is not so bad)

Thanks, I was thinking of Allianz BRIC stars, neptune global equity, jupiter india, and a FTSE tracker fund.

Anyone thoughts please?

For £200 per month it is not worth looking at individual company equities. Over ten years or so, investment trusts would be a better bet than OEICs. For stable growth, and as a first time core holding, I like Alliance Trust. Others to consider might be City of London or Edinburgh, Murray International, or RIT Capital Partners.

In my humble opinion, any fund that specializes in energy/oil. The price of oil is down now, and while it may go lower, eventually it will go back up. Now is the time to dribble in to a fund and/or some individual stocks. BP is a great company with a good dividend that looks like it will survive this round of dividend cuts.
