Vanguard is one of the world's largest asset management groups, which recently launched Vanguard Investor so investors can buy its funds directly. There are just investments and ISAs today – there's no pension yet. You can only hold their investments – so you can’t access other fund managers or buy shares here.
This low-cost service won’t offer research and shares, bells or whistles; but with its LifeStrategy range of funds it will manage your money in a decent portfolio, spread around lots of global investments which are picked and run for you, for just 0.37%.
New investment service from one of the world's largest asset managers.

"I would like to open a Junior shares ISA for my Grandson for about £50/month. How do I go about it and can you recommend some reliable companies? I intend to keep this going for approx 15 years, so am looking for some sort of 'Tracker' fund that does not need my constant attention."

"I am confused about index funds, e.g. Vanguard Equity fund. Do they track an index or include the yield? In the case of Vanguard, their low cost is attractive but their portfolio is made up of other Vanguard funds. I assume these probably each carry a fee structure - is this correct?"
