What is it?

Low cost, timesaving and attractive growth potential

'Shadow Investment’ is a unique service which gives you the opportunity to look over our shoulder and buy the same funds that we personally own, effectively piggybacking on our expertise.

‘Skin in the game’

The key difference with our service is that we put our money where our mouth is. And as an ISACO premium client, you’ll have the opportunity to copy our ‘market–beating’1 fund portfolio throughout the year. This gives you the potential for achieving almost identical returns to the ones we make. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Tax-efficient investing

One of the secrets to our impressive returns is to buy our funds using ‘wrappers’ such as Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) and Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs). Both of them are perfect for helping to boost your annual investment returns.

Shadow Investment benefits:

  • Opportunity to buy the same funds that we buy
  • Low cost (typically 1% per year)
  • Potential for ‘tax free’ growth of 6-8%
  • Keep full control of your investment account
