I'm looking at starting a portfolio and need a little advice on what to look for. It would only be a small investment, of about £7500, that I will grow over time.
I was thinking of going for pretty safe companies that are relatively cheap at the moment. Obviously i'm not expecting to make a fortune, but it will hopefully earn more than sitting in the bank!
Am I better off going for companies such as Tesco, etc, or are there better options available out there for the small time investor?
