Just looking around before I dip my toe in to FI.
What are people's thoughts on the Trackers - are they worth starting off with or should you limit how much of your starting bank should be spent on the most expensive players?
Thanks in advance
I'm only on a very quick break at work so can't hunt it down for you, but there was a really good thread on trackers not too long ago on the forum. Might be worth a scroll through to find it.
Sorry that's a really unhelpful reply lol
@NewUser153941 It's actually a bit of a misnomer. Tracker suggests it tracks something which it doesn't. You just simply buy 1 share each in Top 10, 25, etc. I would steer clear of them.
It all depends on how much time you have to invest in the index, if you want to buy something and forget about it, a tracker is a pretty low risk hold
Away from this, there are probably a number of players within the tracker which don't represent great value
If you are prepared to do a bit more research and can tolerate a bit more risk then you can pick up good value players a lot further down the price list
Personally, my portfolio is made up of 50 shares each in Salah, Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar, they tick along nicely bringing in a steady stream of dividends
The rest of my portfolio is made up of sub £2 players which posted historically decent PB scores in the hope that they either pick up the odd dividend or their price increases sufficiently for me to cash in
Personally there's no point in it in my opinion. As @Blue-Python said, it's literally just buying 1 Neymar, 1 Messi, 1 Kane etc. You are better off going through the top 10, top 25 etc and picking which ones you want.
