Hargreaves Lansdown launches new non-advised service

Written by:
Hargreaves Lansdown has unveiled a new service for non-advised customers.

Portfolio + will enable clients to invest directly in ready-made portfolios built, managed and rebalanced by the HL investment research team.

The firm first announced plans to launch the service in its last trading update in May.

Hargreaves Landown’s head of communications, Danny Cox, said the service offers a third way of investing for customers who want their investments managed for them, but don’t want to pay for financial advice.

“This service can meet the needs of first-time investors, who are yet to build up the knowledge and confidence to choose their own funds, right through to retired investors who simply want to leave investment decisions to someone else,” he said.

Customers can choose from six portfolios and opt to invest for either income or growth, within three pre-determined risk levels.

The portfolios, which are constructed using HL Multi-Manager funds, are rebalanced twice a year by the HL investment team.

The service comes with no on-going charges, with investors paying the annual management charge on the underlying funds and the annual platform charge.

The minimum investment is £1,000. Investors can switch or transfer existing ISAs, pensions and investments into HL Portfolio +.
