What can I invest in?

Moneybox has worked with experts to offer you three starting options - Cautious, Balanced and Adventurous. You can make your choice depending on your attitude to risk and returns.

Starting options screen

Each starting option contains a mix of three tracker funds. These funds are provided by Vanguard, Henderson and Blackrock – three of the largest and most respected companies in the investment world. You are able to customise the asset allocations of our suggested started points. However, you should bear in mind that our Starting Options have been carefully designed by investment experts to optimise risk and return for the selected risk appetite. Please make sure you fully understand how changing the allocations could impact your investment return and risk level before making any changes to these allocations.

The mix of funds in each Starting Option is shown in the table below.
