Monthly Bundle review - July 2019

Bundles review - 2019

Every month we're going to bring you an update on the managed portfolios we have available on EasyEquities. As the co-pilot to your investments, the bundle is a unique EasyEquities product that gives investors a taste of managed portfolios from boutique asset managers. Bundles are categorised according to risk level, ranging from a spectrum of conservative portfolios to more aggressive vehicles. 

For this monthly review we are going to bring you the July performances of all bundles on our platform. Our legal eagles would have me by the scruff of the neck if I didn't remind our audience that the data below is based on past performances, and may not be indicative of future results. Disclaimer done, not check out the stats below:
