LONDON, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
("ISACO" or "the Company")
On February 19th 2013, Holly Cook from Morningstar interviewed Stephen Sutherland, ISACO's Chief Investment Strategist. This interview has been turned into three short videos entitled 'Tips for Managing Your ISA Portfolio', 'Focus on Fees and Performance When Picking ISA Funds' and 'A Professional ISA Investor's View of the Market'.
In particular, Sutherland explains how DIY investors can get their ISAs working harder and provides his top tips for giving them a boost.
In the first video, Sutherland discusses why he prefers ISAs to other wrappers available, whether an income or growth strategy is preferable and how to create an ISA portfolio. He goes on to explain how to monitor and manage an ISA portfolio on an ongoing basis and gives his top tips for ISA investors.
In video 2, Sutherland explains where an investor could start when looking for new investments for an ISA, what data is crucial when conducting research and the free tools an investor can use to find suitable investments. Sutherland also explains how often he reviews his own portfolio and outlines the reasons why.
In the third and final video, Cook asks Sutherland how his portfolio has performed over both the long and short-term. They go on to discuss the opportunities and challenges ahead for ISA investors and Sutherland reveals his outlook for 2013 and beyond. They also discuss how to track institutional investors' activity and how a private investor can use this information to their advantage.
