useful sites

Here are some websites others may find as useful and educational as I do -

Association of Investment Companies
Provides lots of information, articles and useful research tools relating to investment trusts. The 'find an investment company' tab is particularly useful for comparing such things as ongoing charges, dividend yield and discount to NAV. By clicking on any individual trust, you can quickly access more detailed information and the latest annual report.

A good site to research and compare performance of OEICs, investment trusts and ETFs. Provides a useful portfolio tool to help track and analyse your investments.

The main site I use to keep up to date with news and results. You can create a customised alerts list to follow specific shares or investment trust e.g. you hold in your portfolio, and get notified about such things as results and trading reports, directors dealings, dividend declarations etc.

Candid Money
Described by founder Justin Modray as a totally independent, free and impartial financial website. Lots of useful info, articles and calculator tools.

Compare Fund Platforms
A spin-off from Candid Money designed to help investors to compare the costs of holding investment funds via a fund platform or broker and work out the total cost for each.

Digital Look
Research shares, set up and follow your own portfolio or create a watchlist, market reports, regulatory news and much more...

Dividend Data
A no-frills site to monitor dividend payment dates, yield and ex-dividend dates.
