With tens of thousands of investment funds available it is hard to know where to start when building a portfolio. Understanding Investment Sectors is a good place to start, and that’s the subject this week’s show. There's also a fund sector cheatsheet to help you find your way…
This podcast is brought to you with the help of Seven Investment Management, a firm of investment managers based in London. They specialise in multi-asset investing, bringing institutional investing techniques to ordinary people like you and me. 7IM put their name to my show and to my site because they believe in what I’m doing, trying to get decent, easy-to-understand financial information out to the world. I’m very grateful to them for their support.
You can see what they’re up to at 7im.co.uk
In this session you will discover:
- What investment sectors are
- How they are grouped
- How to decide which groups/sectors to look at when choosing your investment funds
- Where I suggest you choose from when just starting out
- How to add satellite funds to a core portfolio
- Why you should be careful not to rely on sectors
Knowledge is power, and this podcast is dedicated to giving you the extra knowledge you need to take your finances into your own hands. With thousands of funds in thirty different sectors, that’s a lot of choice.
Knowing what each sector represents gives you the chance to compare a fund you’re interested in with its peers, as defined by the sector definitions, and that’s what we’re going to talk about next week…
