OTHER ROUTES TO A UNIT TRUST PORTFOLIO
Sunday 02 May 1999
A Skandia spokesman points out that if you were moving funds between ISA managers on the open market you'd pay more than a 0.25 per cent initial charge. But Amanda Davidson, at Holden Meehan, does not see the benefit: "You can achieve what you want through a collection of PEPs and ISAs with different providers over several years - it's easy to transfer if you get fed up."
If you have more to invest - at least pounds 50,000 - a portfolio of unit trusts can be managed by investment houses such as Churchill. This approach is generally fee-based - you'll pay around 1 per cent a year, and will probably also benefit from reductions in front-end charges. "But the drawback is that each time you sell a holding, you'll be up for capital gains tax," says Churchill manager Malcolm Weightman. "That's the big advantage with funds of funds."
