    Invesco have about 30-40 retail funds. Some of which are very good.

    So saying an invesco ISA isnt very good is not quite correct. The ISA isnt good or bad. The ISA is just the wrapper. Its what is contained inside of the wrapper that is important. In this case, what fund(s) are inside your wrapper?

    Hi DD, Sorry for the delay and the lack of informationin the previous posting.

    The funds I invest in at the moment are the
    High Income Fund and the US Core fund of which I invest 60.00 each per month.

    Hope this is more informative and enable you to give me an honest assessment.

    Yours Spreader

    The High Income fund is a cracking little fund. !Not as good historically as the Income fund they offer but certainly above average.

    UK Equity Income sector average over 10 years is 215%. !The Inv Perp High Inc fund is 321.94%. !The last 4 years have consistently outperformed the sector average.

    There are a few IN Perp US funds. !The whole US sector has been very poor for 4 years now. !The last 18 months have seen the decline stop and prove to be stable but not going anywhere generally. ! !One could say that it is a good time to consider investing in US funds as the units are worth half as much as they were before 2000. ! The !Inv Perp US funds performance is on or below sector average at the moment.

    US funds are more volatile than UK funds so its not so much the provider you really need to worry about but perhaps your asset allocation. ! It may be that the US funds are above your risk view.

    The software i use assumes full bid/offer spread and annual management charge when it knocks out those figures.

    Baring Eastern Europe is where i have a little. There isnt a wide range of Eastern European funds though and its going to be difficult to judge which EE fund would be best.
