Are you losing quite a bit on your stocks and shares Isas recently because of Brexit not going well. I know I have been on a downward spiral over the last week. Maybe it's time for a transfer the way Brexit is going.

I'll organise a meeting and ask him to explain his dismal performance.

I'll have to do it when the wife is out, wouldn't want her to hear me talking to myself.

A good portfolio will spread risks such that one share collapse will not be a disaster. Fund managers like Fidelity etc are better to use for a unit trust rather than oneself! Set them a target of , say, 1-2% over FTSE ,net of their fees. Last year that would have been about 8.5 to 9% overall gain.

I think it was Woody Allen who once said a Financial Advisor is someone who uses your money until it runs out.

Ours regularly gets 8% on my wife’s Stocks and Shares ISA’s. He gets 1% . He has enough time to study fund managers and recommends changes. Well worth it.
