    Just used my full ISA allowance 13th Apr 18 at 6:59 PM
    I've just used up my full ISA allowance, when you get to a largish portfolio, it's meaningless to buy in anything less than 10k in my case because it would be such a small single digit percentage of my total sum. So i only invested in two equities.

    I'm sure many of you have the same problem. Makes drip feeding a complete waste of time.

    I'm sure it was an oversight, but you must mean butlerS and chauffeurS, yes? It would be a waste only having one of each!

    Do you use an IFA to help you manage your vast wealth?

    I've just spent ages on the loo, doing a lot of p*o, because just doing some of it would mean I'd have to keep going back to do more which would be a waste of time.

    Though if we actually do the maths on this, you only need a 200k portfolio for a 10k contribution to increase the pot by a "small single digit" (in this case 5%).

    So it may not actually be that grand in the scheme of things. Certainly to reach 200k over 20, 30 or 40 years (including pensions) is eminently achievable, and in some circumstances possibly quite poor.

    It's even reasonably probable that an IFA may not be interested in such a "largish" pot because several round my way turn their noses up at anything below 250k.

    So, trying to come off as anything other than a bit of a jerk is a complete waste of time. You're best just to embrace it and build your online persona around being wealthy and not the sharpest tool in the shed.
