Important information: The AJ Bell funds, AJ Bell Ready-made portfolios and AJ Bell Favourite funds list aren't personal recommendations. We’ve provided the AJ Bell Favourite funds list to help you choose your investments – and aren't recommending that you sell any funds you own that aren't on this list. If you’re not sure about making your own financial decisions or would like advice, speak to a suitably qualified financial adviser. Remember, too, that the value of investments can change and you could lose money as well as make it.
