  1. very well done video. Question: Vanguard has a 4-11 weeks delay in getting the HMRC top up, how would this affect the overall performance of one's SIPP? So, say for 5 years, I am adding £500 and it will take 6 to 11 weeks to get the £125 tax relief into my account … how would this constant delay affect the compounding of my ETF total? I compare this with PensionBee for example, where the tax relief is added right when you do the contribution

  2. Do you think it's safe/reasonable to treat a Vanguard Lifestrategy 20:80 (Equity:Bond) Fund as a short term (~1 year saving) account? I guess this strategy should outperform all fixed term accounts.

  3. Am I better picking the life strategy fund or the build your own options so I can select the ones to use sorry for a silly question I’ve only really browsed across the website before commenting here thanks

  4. Great video, very informative. If I have a £15k lump sum to invest, and I had decided upon one of the portfolios, is it better to invest the full amount, or should I drip feed it over the course of the year? Thanks

  5. Guys help
    I was trying to open an account
    Its asking if I want a general,personal pension, stocks and shares,general account?? I just wanted to leave some savings there and watch it grow hopefully? Please help im clueless

  6. Quick question, guys:
    How much cash should I keep as a balance in my account to pay for their fees as otherwise they sell small amounts of your portfolio?

  7. Thanks so much guys, great video! Is the "Vanguard FTSE Developed World UCITS ETF (VEVE)" that you recommend accumulating or distributing..? I'm looking for accumulation to make use of the compound interest effect… Many thanks!!

  8. You guys are worth your weight in gold, literally.
    This is still "double dutch" to me, but I guess I've got to stretch the "pinkies" and see what happens…

  9. I'm 68 and getting both and index-linked pension and the state pension, so any savings are gravy. I'm 85% in ISAs which consist mostly of high-yield investment trusts and a few high-yield companies, and (non ISA) 15% in Vanguard's LS 100 — I hadn't noticed that it has a big bias towards the UK. If I invest again with them will probably choose a global all cap.

  10. Great channel and really user friendly. Quick question, if you were making an allocation to all 6 portfolios what percentage split would you give to each portfolio?

  11. I think Vanguard LS is too UK weighted, don’t you think? Maybe something more diversified? What about if you do a comparison between LS and iShare MyMap? I think iShare is more diversified and lower cost. Would like to hear your opinion. Thanks

  12. Guys would a splitting of your savings between 80/20 lifestrategy fund and the VWRL not be the best of all worlds? You’ve got some vanguard lifestrategy tinkering, some bonds and also 50% in the VWRL. Am I missing something?

  13. This is a great video, thank you for sharing this concise and transparent video. As a UK investor that wants to stick with Vanguard (before considering a switch to Trading 212/Freetrade next year), the portfolio suggestions was super helpful. I particularly liked the FTSE developed + Emerging Markets portfolio – you'd be surprised how little content there is on youtube on UK Vanguard investors.

  14. I just have three funds which I dollar cost
    average into

    VWRL 70%
    GBDV 25%
    VUKE 5%

    The rest is in Crypto, Gold, Cash.

    Just trying to cover it all as simply as I can.
