I am a lazy investor so I use cheap index funds covering uk, european and international shares, and only own the odd individual share. I use an investment platform to hold my portfolio but all trading is done by myself with no advice. I do my own research. I invest a regular amount each month, about £200. I am in it for the long term, and generally buy and hold rather than try to make a quick profit.
Those are good questions.
I'm just going to leave things are they are. They don't really exist to me anyway. It was only being on this site that gave me a reason to track them down. What I will do is put them in my will and leave them to an animal charity so maybe in the future they will benefit some animals in need.
