This week as part of our Guide to ISA Investing we reveal the top rated and top performing stock and fund ideas – as well as sharing where the experts stash their cash, the latest news from the 2017 Budget Report and how to reduce your tax bill.

UK stocks stayed flat this afternoon, following the Spring Budget report from Chancellor Philip Hammond today – despite good news about the economic outlook.

The UK economic growth forecast has been upgraded from 1.4% to 2% for this year, although in 2018 GDP growth is forecast to slow to 1.6%, before picking up to 1.7% in 2019, then 1.9% in 2020, before picking back up to grow 2% in 2021. Economic growth in 2016 was second only to Germany amongst the major advanced economies, growing faster than the US, Japan and France, Hammond added.
