I've got a unit trust based stocks and shares ISA using a fund of Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) investments which has averaged about 11% for each of the last 5 years, and has done 14% in the last 12 months.

I can PM you the details if you want a look at it.

The cash element has been increased to £5760 for 2013/14. The shares ISA has also been raised. The lock-in deals are the way to go but a measly 3% seems to be about the norm at the moment. I see all the banks are now plugging their ISAs but never display their interest rates. It pays to have a reminder in your phone/diary because when the fixed term expires they automatically drop the rate to something ridiculously low - the robbing swines.

Nice returns there Inky but the risk is too heavy for me :salute:

I just chuck all my "spare" cash in premium bonds. I know it's a gamble, but it's paid 10X that any bank account I've ever had.

25 quid cheques come regularly. My parents get 50's and 100's just about every month!!

a bank account would yield £25 for every £1000 saved at 2.5%

if you invested £7 in in 63 in a savings account at only 5% how much would it be worth now do you think??
and the same £7 at 9% average ??

£80.27 @5%
£520.50 @ 9%
Guessing a Tradesmans wage would have been about £20/week back then!?

At the moment, only a couple of grand. I had about 17k but it went into the other house. Parents have 30k each, the maximum - any money from mine goes into more bonds automatically. Any they get, has to be cash.

It's not enough going in for me to really care atm.

It's great for me as I rarely plan (other than work) past 2 days which means I don't ever take it out. Takes 5 days, which pretty much rules any big purchase out :lol:

It works for me, but not for anyone after regular income.
