Tory-free investing

Hopefully this might be of use to those of you out there who are worried about being involved with an investment product provider who funds the Tories. Remember that it's not just about the product itself, you may also have a link depending on how you set up your investment. If you are investing via the Funds Network fund supermarket you are still giving money to Fidelity, who in turn give hundreds of thousands of pounds to the Tories.

However there are alternatives, so if you want to invest via a fund supermarket that isn't tied to a politically aligned fund manager have a look at Cofunds. Our financial adviser has checked this out for us and Cofunds don't make any political donations. So consider switching if you use Funds Network.
