Choose your ISA funds with our expert's guidance

Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and all tax rules may change in the future. Please note that Tom’s picks are not a personal recommendation for you. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to an authorised financial adviser.

Tom's picks

Each year our Investment Director, Tom Stevenson, reveals the funds he’ll be putting in his Stocks and Shares ISA. These are a few funds that he feels are particularly interesting investment options which are in line with his general views on the market. As stock markets have become quite volatile recently, his fund choices this year have been particularly chosen for their defensive qualities.

The funds below are Tom’s picks and they may be worth considering for your ISA this year, but it’s important to remember that these funds are not a personal recommendation for you.

Tom’s picks for 2020 are:

  • Artemis Global Emerging Markets Fund
  • Fidelity Global Dividend Fund
  • Fidelity Select 50 Balanced Fund
  • Liontrust UK Growth Fund

Important information - If you’d like to invest in or find out more about these funds then view their factsheets below.

Some of these funds invest in overseas markets and so the value of investments can be affected by changes in currency exchange rates. Currency hedging is used to substantially reduce the risk of losses from unfavourable exchange rate movements on holdings in currencies that differ from the dealing currency. Hedging also has the effect of limiting the potential for currency gains to be made. Some of these funds invest in emerging markets which can be more volatile than other more developed markets. Some of these funds use derivative instruments for investment purposes, which may expose the fund to a higher degree of risk and can cause investments to experience larger than average price fluctuations. Some of these funds invest in bonds and there is a risk that the issuers of bonds may not be able to repay the money they have borrowed or make interest payments. When interest rates rise, bonds may fall in value. Rising interest rates may cause the value of your investment to fall. You must ensure that any fund you choose to invest in is suitable for your own personal circumstances. You should regularly reassess the suitability of your investments to ensure they continue to meet your attitude to risk and investment goals.
