You might like to take a 7 day trial of John Baron at - http://www.johnbaronportfolios.co.uk/ - where he specialises in Investment Trust portfolios. You can get a free trial, his annual fee is currently £160 rising £170 in January, a very small percentage of your portfolio and much cheaper than an advisor.

You do realise that this 'very small percentage' is almost exactly the 0.45% charged by HL that is usually described as outrageously high?
Unless he gets in quick, of course.

Sorry, I don't get your point here. John Baron is a completely different service to HL. I recognise the importance of cutting costs but my opinion is that a new investor is unlikely to have the experience necessary to invest wisely, John Baron would certainly help and taking the 7-day free trial seems a sensible idea. Your mileage may vary as they say.

By the way, I have no gain in suggesting the OP seeks advice from sources such as Baron, Trustnet, Morningstar etc. I simply thought they may offer some help to a new investor.
