Now is the time for advisers to transfer some of the £140bn held in cash ISAs back into the market, London & Capital believes.
Jamie Farquhar, London & Capital’s UK retail head, says advisers should be actively seeking to shift out of cash following the changes to ISA rules earlier this month.
He says this is the ideal time for cautious investors to consider conservative funds which can potentially generate higher returns than cash.
“As interest rates continue to fall investors will see lower returns from cash than they can potentially achieve in a conservative portfolio, whilst retaining a low level of volatility and risk,” Farquhar says.
London & Capital believes its portfolio management service will take advantage of the first “tentative steps” from cash ISAs into managed portfolios.
“We would expect to see significant interest in the conservative portfolio as investors step onto the next rung of the investment ladder in terms of risk profile,” Farquhar says.
