[Request] Vanguard lifestrategy

Fantastic value and good performing multi-asset portfolios. Widely available and from Vanguard. When could these be added, please?

Agree that it’d be good to add these.

For LS100, a Vanguard ETF VWRP is a good substitute. LS funds overweight the U.K. market quite a lot so VWRP is a better global fund as it gives the U.K. its correct global weighting.

I believe this has come up before and Freetrade have said they’re only looking at Exchange Traded Funds, which LifeStrategy is not - it’s more a traditional fund so you can’t buy and sell it on a stock exchange - but rather via the fund manager, which Freetrade doesn’t support.

This is a good explanation of the difference: https://www.vanguardinvestor.co.uk/articles/latest-thoughts/how-it-works/difference-between-etf-and-traditional-fund

If you’re interested in ESG investing, these ETFs I’ve just requested use a similar ‘set and forget’ asset allocation approach: [Request] iShares multi-asset ESG range - (e.g MAGG)
