    Cant find a specific thread on this - would be useful to know!

    1) How many years have you invested for and how much have you invested
    2) How much do you now have in the ISA/SIPP?

    What would be interesting to know is if there are people who have passively invested in low cost global trackers/index funds for 10+ years and have made a loss. Or even more so for 20+ years

    I completely understanding of the risk in the markets and the dips but my understanding is long term they should beat cash ISAs and the like. Were I to check my investment in 10-15 years or so and see I had less than what I had put in - I think I would be disapppointed

    And as said, you can work that out by looking at historical performance data there's no need to ask anyone. Plus there are plenty of studies you could find showing passive versus active strategies no need to rely on a handful of anecdotal answers here.
    Please dont criticise my spelling. It's excellent. Its my typing that's bad.
