How we buy these assets for you

Once we've determined which assets should go into a portfolio, and in what proportions, we look to invest in them in the most efficient way possible. We generally prefer to use exchange-traded funds (ETFs) because they’re easy to trade, low cost and aim to track the movement of market indices with a high degree of accuracy.

About ETFs

ETFs hold investment assets — like stocks and bonds — and they are widely traded on many stock exchanges. They usually track an index, like the FTSE 100, or the Dow Jones.
