A bastion for UK passive investors

Our new bastion of passive investing

The Accumulator, my co-blogger here at Monevator, is taking a well-earned break for a few weeks.

But his quest to throw light onto the murky world of UK passive investing has not gone to the sunbed with him.

On the contrary, I have added a ‘Passive Investing’ drop-down option to the ‘Investing’ tab above (just beneath the Monevator logo).

Clicking ‘Passive Investing’ takes you to our new passive investing headquarters.

At the moment it consists of just a quick introduction to the indexing lifestyle and highlights some key articles to get newcomers started. But I hope we can eventually grow it into a fully-fledged passive investing bastion for UK savers.

I’d like to create the definitive one-stop guide that you’d feel comfortable sending any member of your family to, in order to get them started with passive investing.

I know we have a long way to go yet – in fact, that goal may be impossible – but if we end up with a modest champion of index investing to stand up against the might of the managed fund machine, then that’d be quite an achievement.

Please do check the page out, and if you’ve got any thoughts or tips on what we should incorporate (remembering the tricky balance between simplicity and detail) then please do let me know in the comments below.

Who knows, perhaps you’ll find an article you missed first time around! 🙂

    Thank you – I fully support and appreciate your sentiments of creating a one stop site for passive investing.
    Your efforts are welcome given the lack of UK websites/blogs dealing with this subject – the US sites/blogs are in abundance but are limited in their usefulness for UK readers/investors.
    I look forward to continued articles.

    @William — Thanks, much appreciated. The Accumulator should be back in a few weeks and normal service should resume.

    Great series of blogs, most helpful for me to understand the different options available. Off now to find some index trackers!
