This article is part of Morningstar's "Perspectives" series, written by third-party contributors. Here, Tom Stevenson, investment director at Fidelity Worldwide Investment, provides six tips for ensuring you're no April Fool this tax year.

With the end of tax year deadline fast approaching, many savers may be planning to use the long weekend to make the most of their ISA allowance before it runs out.  To coincide with April Fools Day, which falls on Easter Monday this year, Fidelity Worldwide Investment has highlighted six fool-proof tips for ISA investing to help investors make the most of their savings.

Nothing could be truer when it comes to investing. Piling all your money into one asset class or into one geographical area can be very dangerous if markets fall. By rule of thumb, investors should spread their investments across multiple asset classes from equities to bonds and across different regions from the UK to Asia.
