Holly's Investments

I write this page not because I want people to take it as advice, or recommendations BUT because I know that you feel suspicious about people in finance. Most of you ask me where I invest. What I do with my own savings. Many of you have been burned before and assume that any pundits have an ulterior motive. Or take cash for bigging some things up.

We are fiercely independent at Boring Money. We understand that we are talking to you about your money and your life. We won’t abuse that. I was brought up by a Scottish accountant who is the most painstakingly honest ‘unsung hero’ I know. And he taught me to say what I think and be honest. So – even though you don’t know me – you have my personal promise that anything we say we like on this site – is because we do.

I also have to say that I have quite so many accounts because I test as many as I can. What does it feel like as a customer? I certainly wouldn’t suggest anyone has as many accounts as this – nightmare! I’d also observe that I invest with a long timeframe so I’m on the hardcore spicy side of the spectrum!

As at June 2017, I have investments in:
