Have spent the last week getting the right ticker symbols for the ETFs set up on my online account and finalising selection - starting to purchase tomorrow and do it monthly from here on out. Kept it pretty simple and went with 4 Blackrock ishares ETFs from their core range to average in over the next 3 years at varying rates/allocations. Once I get these to a size will look at widening it out. Have bought two stocks also for the long term, boring industrials and looking at UK investment trusts but no rush. Apart from that will go slow and steady.
