    And what are you investing in?

    Intrigued to know who invests their whole allowance at the beginning of every tax year (as opposed to drip feeding). Given the leap in allowance size I imagine not too many people will be able to afford to do this.

    And will you be avoiding certain funds given the uncertainty of the Brexit negotiations ?

    We're going "whole hog" this year with full £40k into our S&S ISAs. Already got the first two pots in, from a maturing Reg Saver and our "slush" RCI account. Just waiting for another couple of Reg Savers to mature in May, and that's us in!!!!

    (then just sit back and wait for the slide.....yes, it will be all our fault!!!!)

    Market drops are just opportunities to lower your average purchase price

    Have money to invest. Just don,t want to tempt the gods while the election campaign is on. Have seen opinion polls go wrong before. Havie a fairly diverse portfolio. Just wonder where would be the best best bet given all the uncertainties of Brexit and the North Korea situation, the latter seeming to be something as haven,t seem to stock market seeming to be too worried about. (Or am I misreading this situation?)
