How I Invested 20k Using ETFs and Vanguard Direct ISA

You asked on YouTube how I would invest £20k of my own money so in these videos I go through the whole process step-by-step. The booklet "Investing with Vanguard Direct" is written to help you get the most out of Vanguard funds, but more generally to help you learn how to build a portfolio. The booklet contains an explanation of why I chose Vanguard as a platform, what asset types are available, then a word about finding your risk profile and a directory of Vanguard funds that are on offer. If you're confused remember you can always call me!

Here's a screenshot of the Table of Contents:
