Questions & answers

What can I invest in?

Moneybox has worked with experts to offer you three starting options – Cautious, Balanced and Adventurous. All you need to do is pick one based on your attitude to risk and return.

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 starting options. 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 allocation 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.

It's important you know

All investing should be regarded as longer term. The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
