With less than one month left of this tax year time is running out for ISA and pension investors – or anyone looking to boost their savings and reduce their HMRC bill. Read our Guide to ISAs, Pensions and Tax-efficient investing to make sure you don’t get left behind.

With just few weeks to go before the end of the tax year, investors are looking for potential holdings for their ISA portfolio. Just like actively run funds, exchange-traded funds can be held in an ISA or self-invested personal pension (SIPP) investment wrapper to save tax.

ETFs are passive funds that provide investors direct exposure to a particular stock, bond or alternative assets market such as the FTSE 100 or UK Property index. ETFs charges a low annual management fees than other trackers funds and they also offer investors a wider choice of markets to track. If an asset class or a market had been performed under expectation, a diversified investment like ETFs could minimise the risk. ETFs can be an effective investment vehicle to widen investors’ portfolios exposure at a low cost.
