Where to invest your money in 2020?

As the end of the year approaches, it is time (as every year!) to take stock of the current year and to look forward to the next. What to do with your current portfolio? Did it perform well in 2019? If not, why? What were the best investments and the best trades? Will we keep the same allocation, the same investments? Are we going to have to choose: sell investments or funds in order to buy others?

Looking ahead to 2020 is still a bit of a juggle with numbers for investors as we have the fall-out from Brexit to, trade deals (even trade wars?) and the US election all impacting on market movements.

So, I’ve stuck to some well-known UK shares to bolster my portfolio as follows:

With RDSB it may seem like an odd inclusion as its share price has pretty much remained the same for the last 10 years - but it’s the low volatility that is the attraction for the long term investor as it will afford you a steady 6.5 to 7.0% yield with little or no stress. The only overriding consideration right now for Shell shares is what is the best price you can get them for.

Happy New Year!
