welcome to this click explains finance video this week a question I get asked
0:16
quite a lot which is better share portfolio or fun so let’s take a look
0:21
it’s gonna be a snapshot comparison lots more information available elsewhere as
0:25
i mentioned at the end so imagine you’re going to go out buy shares now we don’t
0:30
recommend single stocks that is not a way of making sure you spread your risk
0:34
so we’re looking at the choice between putting money into a diversified
0:38
portfolio of say fifteen twenty twenty-five chosen equities and/or funds
0:43
or simply handing you money over 21 fund manager and Neil Woodford for argument
0:50
sake which of those options gives you the better exposure to equities and the
0:54
Arthur’s ever is it depends now to summarize how would you go about making
0:59
that choice so portfolio on the Left fund on the right all depends here are
1:05
some criteria to think about if its simplicity and an easy life you’re after
1:08
then a fun will give you that because you’re simply buying shares in an
1:12
investment trusts or units in a fun handing over your money in return if you
1:17
like metaphorically for one piece of paper nice and simple nice and clear
1:21
that’s what you want that a standard off-the-shelf fund will give it to you
1:25
however it may not be if you want to see what’s going on under the bonnet if you
1:29
want to know what decision has been taken when and why then you’re gonna get
1:34
much more visibility out of a direct portfolio run by a manager right because
1:39
you can actually see what’s going on and indeed influence it and on top of that
1:43
you’ll get more flexibility in terms of the way that the investment strategy
1:47
works not explain what I mean by that in just one moment I’ll come back to that .
1:50
now
1:52
a lot depends on how much you’ve got to invest if you’re investing relatively
1:55
small amounts as either lump sum or a regular monthly payment then to be
1:59
honest a standard off-the-shelf fund is probably a better back for larger
2:04
amounts your banker bark may I stress may be increased through some of the
2:09
advantages of a direct portfolio for access again direct portfolios can work
2:16
in your favor and try to get a big standard for manager on the phone the
2:19
questionnaire
2:20
strategy you will seriously struggling retail investor where is that is
2:24
something that’s perfectly possible through better access with a direct
2:27
portfolio tax planning is important to some investors around the end of the tax
2:32
year for one or two things you can do to legitimately reduce your capital gains
2:35
tax bill and that is easy with a direct portfolio usually been through a
2:40
standard fund and finally administration are going to be honest here revert back
2:44
to a fun to be simple low work administration you’re after then
2:49
standard fun will tend to give that to you as they have it a blow-by-blow
2:55
comparison let’s go back to flexibility as i mentioned why am I saying a direct
2:59
portfolio gives you flexibility and some investors clicking larger sums this can
3:04
be important because first of all you can follow a tailored mandate the
3:09
problem with funds is you are following a standard mandate if you like and you
3:13
don’t have much say over what the fun doesn’t doesn’t invest it
3:17
so if vice is something you have a strong view on by which i mean alcohol
3:20
tobacco and say gaining firms some people may want exposure to that some
3:25
people absolutely want to avoid exposure to that with a direct portfolio animal
3:30
tailored mandate you decide if you want to invest tactically you think crikey
3:35
thanks to do the referendum result of pounds plunge dollar-denominated
3:39
investments look like they can be phenomenal this year and you want to get
3:42
in there now a little bit nimble and ninja-like then a direct portfolio gives
3:47
you the ability to invest tactically where you might be kind of screaming at
3:51
the screen wondering why fund manager hasn’t done the same thing
3:54
and finally you can wait stocks according to the themes you like much
3:58
more easily with a direct portfolio because you have much more say so if
4:02
technology is your thing you might get frustrated by standard indices with
4:05
their very low waiting is particularly in the UK on one something which gives
4:09
you more buying to that sector or theme now some people said to me on a minute
4:16
aren’t you missing something you said its direct portfolio or fund what about
4:21
going completely passive stripping out the active managers on both sides and
4:25
over exchange-traded fund
4:27
where’s that well actually I’ve covered that elsewhere which is why i haven’t
4:30
