Investments

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.

Each Starting Option contains a mix of tracker (mutual) funds. If you’d like to, you can customise the asset allocations of our suggested starting options to create a personalised portfolio. 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:

Cautious Balanced Adventurous Comment
Global Shares: Fidelity 15% 65% 80% Track the global stock market with shares in more than 1600 companies across 23 countries.
Global Property Shares: iShares by BlackRock 5% 10% 15% Pool your money with lots of others to invest in over 300 property companies from around the world, across a range of industries from residential housing to shopping centres.
Overseas Corporate Bonds ESG: iShares by BlackRock 20% 25% 5% Balance your portfolio with bonds which are generally a lower risk and lower return option than shares.
Overseas Government Bonds: iShares by Blackrock 20% Diversify your portfolio and balance your risk with government bonds.
Cash Trust: Legal & General 40% Instead of investing in shares, the fund deposits most of your money with the banks and financial institutions offering the most competitive interest rates at the time.

 

In addition to these Starting Options, we offer five further tracker funds you can invest in. More information of each fund can be found in the app under Settings > Allocations:

 

If you have a Stocks & Shares ISA, you can also customise your investment allocation to invest in a range of US stocks & ETFs. The ETFs we currently offer are:

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.
