New Fund Suggestion for ISA?



In my stocks and shares ISA I'm currently investing monthly in:

HSBC FTSE 250  (Acc)
Legal & General US Index (Acc)
Vanguard Emerging Markets Stock Index (Acc)

Would like to add one more low cost fund, mix it up a bit. Anyone got any suggestions?

My go-to low cost fund is Alliance Trust (ATST).

0.65% management charge,  so good value..  though not particularly a recommendation as they are very heavily weighted in US tech etc which has been on a bull run for quite a while now.


The AIC is generally a great place to research investment trusts BTW.

Well I always prefer big companies in developed economies so to my mind you're missing out on exposure to the following:

FTSE 100 (you may or may not know that FTSE 250 is 101 - 350 by market capitalisation and not 1 - 250).

European big companies

Asian big companies


I don't know any fund that combines just those however you could cash in your US tracker and buy a worldwide developed economies main index tracker; I particularly like the weighted by economy size funds such as Vanguard offers.

Their fees are also extremely low.

I have invested heavily in:

1) ISPY - Cyber security fund

2) ESGB - E-sports fund

3) ANIC - cultured meat products 

4) HTWO - Hydrogen fund

All at the higher risk/reward end of the investment spectrum…
