    Just an idea, diversification is still considered “one of the free lunches” by some. I would not touch a long portfolio but a not so large sum in an all short diversified portfolio. This I think I could be comfortable with for now. It doesn’t take too much work also, there are a few packages in python for efficiant portfolio optimization. Market return data is available.

    Default RateSetter

    Until Covid hit RateSetter was unbeatable for interest rates, a degree of risk attached but up to 5% return.

    Even they RS have had to reduce interest rates (halved) recently but still better than anything else around at the moment.

    Spending too much time at home watching morning property programs has giving me an Idea for plan B which is to buy 3 bed properties and have them converted to 4/5 bed for sale, then hopefully move on to teardown & rebuilds.

    Plan B dreams aside ......, what about opening a separate company B funded via a structured loan from ltd company. Then invest that money in funds?
