ISA Transfers

Why we like it: You don’t have to make any tricky investment decisions; your money will be invested in Shepherds With Profits Fund, and the bonuses you could receive will depend on the future performance of the fund. To try to achieve higher returns for you, your money is invested in a variety of assets, the majority of which consist of stocks and shares, but also property, bonds and cash. While returns are not guaranteed in stocks and shares investments and the value can go down as well as up, Shepherds apply a process known as ‘smoothing’ that attempts to even out fluctuations in the value and aims to keep a consistent level of bonus payments.

Biotech Funds

Biotech funds are a type of collective investment that is usually classified as a specialist fund, as it can not be defined using the mainstream investment fund sectors. Biotech funds will usually aim to provide long term capital growth primarily through in companies heavily involved in biotechnology and medical research industries worldwide.

Like most collective investments, there are a number of advantages to biotechnology

  • Professional fund managers make the important decisions
  • They can contribute to a diverse investment portfolio
  • They allow you to invest in a specialist area

However biotech funds by their very nature will invest heavily in foreign companies and this will mean that your capital is exposed to exchange rate risk.
