S8E2: Greatest Hits – Shares vs Funds
Continuing my delve into the deepest depths of the MeaningfulMoney archives. This week I’m pulling out an episode from July 2014 which was responding to an iTunes reviewer gently accusing me of not fully justifying my general advice that for most people, it is better to invest in funds rather than directly into shares. It’s an important point, and worth revisiting I reckon…
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.

Shares vs Funds
I think it’s such an important message to get across. I’m very aware that it might seem self-serving to push the idea of funds rather than shares, for reasons I go into in the body of the show. But I think there are far more reasons for ordinary people to invest this way, and again I cover those in depth. Hopefully it’s a balanced view!
Last call for this! Over 250 responses so far.
