When it comes to investing, should you go it alone or enlist an adviser to help? Years ago, few people would have felt confident enough to handle their own finances, but the introduction of online investment platforms have made it cheap and easy to do-it-yourself.

DIY investing has become the norm in many countries as more and more people want to take control of their own financial future. And with the likes of Vanguard offering accounts for a fee as little as 0.15%, it’s not hard to see why a growing army of investors prefer this route than using an IFA, who might charge 10 times that amount.
