    S+S ISA....what sector 10th Oct 16 at 7:52 PM
    I've got a couple of S+S ISA's which have done quite well over the past eight years. I now have another £13k to invest and I think that given the low interest rates, I would like to put the money into another S+S ISA.

    The two existing ISA's are in the Asia Pacific emerging market sector and the North American sector. The Asia Pacific ISA has done particularly well and its tempting to put my money there but I would probably feel better spreading the risk. What sector would be a good investment right now?

    Thanks.

    all the ones you are not invested in would be a good start.

    But why have 3 accounts alltogether?

    Why not have 1 account with all the holdings under it?

    Sorry.... the existing two holdings are held under a Hargreaves Lansdown Vantage account. The new one will probably be added to the existing account.
