I am a newby. I have been reading about stock investments for a month and so. But I still don’t feel much confident of what I have concluded. So I guess I am looking for some kind of advice or validation.
First of all, my investment goal is long term. So generally I am interested in ETF investment, but I am also curious about investing in shares. Initially I am thinking of investing £500/month.
I am thinking of investing £300/month on ETFs based pie. For this I am thinking of 30% UK ETF (Vanguard FTSE 250 GBP), 30% US (Vanguard S&P 500 ETF), 15% EU (Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe GBP), 15% Japan (Vanguard FTSE), 10% emerging market (Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets GBP). My doubt here is that, is this reasonable distribution of percentage among these markets ? And do you thinkg these ETFs are good choice, or do you suggest any others ?
£100/month on FAANG+ shares. £10 each.
£100/month on smaller companies from various sectors that I would do research and read news and allocate shares on ad-hoc base.
Looking forward for you valuable comments.
