Automated Investment Strategies in GBP

The Money Pouch is a roboadviser which can automatically trade ETFs.

Due to new EU rules concerning PRIIPS (Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products), residents in the EU & UK can no longer invest in most US-denominated Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). This is because it would cost millions of dollars for a US-based institution to adhere to the new European rules.

Instead, for UK-based clients, you will have to invest in a EUR-denominated ETF portfolio.

  • All investment portfolios are automatically invested and rebalanced frequently in EUR
  • All investment portfolios are also optimised to reduce risk.
  • All dividends are automatically reinvested
  • We have three different types of strategies based on a client's risk profile: conservative, balanced and adventurous. 
  • The Money Pouch uses automated trading systems using EUR ETFs which are traded in the UK on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) or Germany on the Deutsche Börse

Estimated Investment Returns in GBP

The GBP ETF strategy invests in 10 different assets. 

Please see the backtested returns below, correct 8th March, 2019. The conservative strategy returned just over 5% in 2018, which was a choppy year for trading.

The Conservative Strategy = 17% returns per year

The Balanced Strategy = 22% returns per year

The Adventurous Strategy = 26% returns per year

Leverage: conservative (0.8), balanced (1.0), adventurous (1.3)

Returns above are an approximation based on backtesting; if you are a resident in the UK or EU, you can no longer trade US-denominated ETFs, so you will need to use this strategy.
