Should you buy funds or individual shares?



Welcome back to Getting Started – our video series for first-time investors with JONATHAN HOLLOW. This time we ask whether it makes sense to buy individual shares? Or should you invest in a fund instead?






JONATHAN HOLLOW worked for the UK Government’s Money and Pensions Service and is a writer and commentator on consumer education and protection. He is the co-author, with Robin Powell, of the award-winning book How to Fund the Life You Want, which is published by Bloomsbury.



Getting Started is a series of videos aimed at first-time investors. Here are some others you may have missed:

Should you put off investing amid uncertainty?

How much risk should I be taking?

How do I invest tax-efficiently?



It’s not essential nowadays to seek professional financial advice before you start to invest, but it is definitely a good idea to do so. We also recommend that everyone has a financial plan.

If you would like us to put you in touch with a financial planner in your area, who shares our evidence-based investment philosophy, just click here and send us your email address, and we’ll see if we can help.
