What's your investment personality?

We believe investment should be simple. So we’d like to introduce you to five ready-made, online investment funds that get you started from just £50. Just like you, each has its own characteristics. So if one of them sounds familiar, it might be the investment that will suit you best.

Our five investment personalities

Cautious

Cautious and Careful

Personal Portfolio 1 Fund (or, as we like to call it, PPF1) is the lowest-risk investment fund we offer. It’s a bit like making a group booking at an Italian restaurant — because everyone likes something from an Italian menu, right?

Steady and Sound

Personal Portfolio 2 Fund (we prefer PPF2 for short), takes a wee step up the risk ladder — and we really mean a wee step. Think of it like driving to work a different way. You might get there quicker, you might not. Either way, it doesn't represent a huge risk in life.

Balanced

Balanced and Bold

Personal Portfolio 3 Fund (just call it PPF3) puts more focus on higher-risk investments. It’s maybe on a level with someone considering a new hobby, like indoor climbing, but not without all the right safety gear.

Optimistic

Optimistic and Assured

If Personal Portfolio 4 Fund (guess what – we call it PPF4) was a person, they’d be the kind who takes the training wheels off their bike before they’ve mastered riding it. Sure, it means more bruises, but it also means faster results.

Daring and Determined

Personal Portfolio 5 Fund (we much prefer PPF5) is a bold adventurer. If it was on holiday with friends it’d be the one off shark diving without a cage while everyone else stayed sensibly on the boat.

Royal Bank Invest past performance

Take a look how the five funds have performed in the past. As investments can go down as well as up, past performance isn't an indicator of future performance. However, this will show you how the funds have performed over time. 

Investment options

You'll have two choices on how to hold your investment. Whichever option you choose you'll still need to choose from one of the 5 ready made funds, you can't select individual stocks and shares to invest in.

Stock and Shares ISA

Investments held in a Stocks and Shares ISA means you don’t need to pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax on any investment growth. But there’s a limit on what you can invest in ISAs in any given tax year, for the 2020/2021 tax year it’s £20,000 (this is the total for both Cash ISAs and Stocks and Shares ISAs).

General Investment Account

There is no limit on the amount you can invest in the Royal Bank Invest General Investment Account. However, UK income tax and Capital Gains Tax are potentially payable.

You can hold investments in a Stocks and Shares ISA and a General Investment Account.
