    I wouldn't recommend any active management......for small sums that you want to leave alone for say more than 5 years in an ISA I'd go with Vanguard and use a VLSxxx fund. If you are young something like VLS100 or VLS80 might work. There are plenty of other solutions, but this one is inexpensive and simple.

    Hi,

    I posted this link in another thread this morning, will give you an idea, though check out individual sites for charges, and exit fees, in case you want out early.
    Y'all take care now.

    A few years is too short a time frame to guarantee that an investment will grow as there could be an equity crash any time. You need to be prepared to leave it invested a lot longer and decide what level of risk you want, and then a good idea is to choose a passive global diversified multi asset fund that has the percentage of equities to bonds that you are comfortable with as regards risk/volatility.

    Vanguard now have their own platform which offers an ISA. Very low cost and offers excellent low cost managed strategies depending on your appetite for risk.
