Virgin Money Review

as of 27/08/2020 at 10:37 am

Holly's View

Needs work. Virgin aspires to be seen as a cool disrupter so I wasn’t expecting the diversion from web to paper-based investment journey. I don’t enjoy my leaflet which is posted every 3 months with a performance update. Oh dear. Probably much better for ISAs than general investment accounts.

There is also a sixth investment option: the Climate Change Fund. There are no individual company shares or funds from other groups.

The charges range from 0.6-1% a year all-in for their simple ‘passive’ portfolios. This is the vanilla ice cream option for the stocks and shares ISA world. Move on if you’re after double choc chip with sprinkles.
