Surviving – and investing in – lockdown with your children

As stock markets plunge and schools are forced to close, there will be some businesses to benefit from lockdown while parents juggle work and childcare. So, for anyone still thinking about investing their ISA before the end of this tax year, Staci West takes us through a light-hearted, whistle-stop tour of some of the businesses that could benefit from lockdown, and the funds investing in them.

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
