Our review of Aviva
Aviva does it all, which isn’t necessarily a good thing if you only want to use them as an investment platform. As more of a full financial lifestyle company, investments are only one small part of what they offer. And as a result, this part of the service is very basic.
In general, their website is very clear and intuitive – a dream to use, with tools, planners and guidance aplenty. However, the jury’s out on how useful this information is for beginners who are still learning.
As for the range of investments, they’re nothing special but certainly good enough for investors who aren’t so hands-on. If you want more independence and tons of choice, you’d be better off elsewhere. Otherwise, Aviva is a pretty good option.
