Nearly half of investors are looking to drip feed their Isas

Forty three per cent of Isa investors are looking to drip feed their investments this year, according to research conducted by Mori for Fidelity.

It also found that 34 per cent want their money to go straight into equities as a lump sum. Another 16 per cent would like a facility which would see their money temporarily parked until they wanted to reenter the stockmarket.

Fidelity says hesitance is understandable given the volatility of the markets and it has introduced a 12 month phasing option.
