After your investment
The portfolio constituents will be reviewed regularly by Money Observer. Any new selections and analysis will be distributed to you as an investor in one of our model portfolios. At that point you will have the option to act on the recommendations.
A full overview of the portfolios and constituents was published in Money Observer's annual review.
These products are ‘Execution Only’. We will present information to you so that you can make an informed decision – but the decision is yours as to which investment you decide to invest in.
As some of these portfolios contain Investment Trusts and Funds please be aware that due to different settlement times you may not see all investments within the Model Portfolio confirmed within your portfolio at the same time. Investment Trusts settle within 15 minutes whilst the market is open and Funds settle within 2 business days depending on the time of day purchased.
