Which Motley Fool Service Is Right For Me?

Our mission at The Motley Fool is: To Make the World Smarter, Happier, and Richer.

We offer a range of premium investing services to match the needs of a broad range of temperaments and timelines, interests and investing attitudes.

You might well ask, though, how do you decide which Motley Fool UK service is right for you?

It’s a personal decision, but we can help.

Net worth

If you have less than £25,000 in investable assets, we think either Motley Fool Share Advisor or Motley Fool Hidden Winners are likely to be a better fit for you. If you’re considering joining The Partnership Portfolio UK or Blast Off UK 2020, we’d suggest you start with at least £25,000 of investable assets, in order to get the most out of your membership.


Are you a risk-taker, or does the thought of losing money turn your stomach? We have services designed for different risk tolerances. Bear in mind, though, that investing in the stock market is never risk-free.

What you get with each service:

Motley Fool Share Advisor

Our flagship share-tipping service offers two recommendations each month, one of which is growth-orientated while the other is income-orientated.

You’ll also receive the team’s monthly selection of ‘Best Buys Now’ stocks, plus a handful of ‘Starter Stocks’, and tons of other great investing information.

Share Advisor concentrates on larger companies, typically valued at £500m+.

Motley Fool Hidden Winners

Enjoy one high-conviction small-cap share recommendation every month, plus up-to-date coverage for every single active Hidden Winners recommendation.

You’ll also have access to the ‘Hidden Winners Universe’, which includes all current buy recommendations, watch-list stocks, plus the small-cap shares our team believes you should avoid.

Hidden Winners concentrates on smaller UK companies, typically valued between £20m and £500m.

The Partnership Portfolio UK

The Partnership Portfolio UK follows a bespoke Motley Fool investing strategy, specifically designed to hunt down some of the world’s most ambitious, determined, and visionary founder-leaders

Launched in March 2019, the service aims to help investors like you gain instant exposure to what we think are some of the market’s most explosive and perhaps least-followed founder-led stocks.

It currently contains the research behind a full 24 high-potential founder led ‘buy’ recommendations

Each share has been selected in accordance with Motley Fool CEO Tom Gardner’s rigorous ‘X-Factor’ investing system for evaluating founder CEOs.

Blast Off UK 2020

Blast Off UK 2020 is Motley Fool UK’s newest and most exclusive ‘Maximum Potential Upside’ investing service.

It currently recommends 15 US-listed stocks, with an additional 5 set to be added every quarter. And all have been chosen by legendary ‘Rule Breaker’ stock-picker and Motley Fool Co-Founder David Gardner.

Aiming to do more than simply ‘beat the market’, Blast Off UK 2020 passes on those ‘household name’ US stocks and instead looks for those that fit his very specific ‘Moonshot’ strategy.

Blast Off UK 2020 is intended to help you choose the US shares for the most aggressive 10-25% of your portfolio.

So if you join and subsequently feel it’s not what you need, just cancel within the first 30 days and we’ll refund your subscription fee in full, with no quibbling.

We want you to be a member of the investing service that’s right for you.

Happy investing!

Risk Warning

  • The value of shares and the income from them can fall as well as rise.
  • ‘Hidden Winners’ is the title of our small-cap newsletter service, but this does not mean, or imply, there is any guarantee of positive performance.
  • Investment in the securities of smaller and/or medium-sized companies (such as those featured in Hidden Winners and Pro) can involve greater risk than for larger, more established companies. Price movements may be more volatile, and they can react strongly to news or recommendations. You should always check the price before you deal. The market for smaller company shares may be less liquid, meaning they may be harder to trade.
  • You run an extra risk of losing money when you buy shares in certain smaller companies including “penny shares”.
  • There is a big difference between the buying price and the selling price of these shares. If you have to sell them immediately, you may get back much less than you paid for them. The price may change quickly, it may go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount invested. It may be difficult to sell or realise the investment.
  • The Share Advisor and Pro newsletters may recommend securities listed on overseas stock exchanges. Investors may incur extra dealing charges, administrative costs or withholding taxes when dealing in these securities and should check with their stockbroker before dealing. Many UK stockbroking platforms levy an ‘FX charge’ when dealing in securities in other currencies, and this can be a multiple of the standard dealing cost. This can mean the price needs to move much further in your favour before you will be able to realise a profit. You should also be aware that dividends may be paid in US dollars or in other currencies, and that these could also attract additional charges. If this is the first time you have dealt in US-listed stocks, your broker will probably ask you to complete a W-8BEN form as a formality. This establishes your foreign ownership and prevents double taxation. Bear in mind the time difference as well when dealing on North American markets – you will generally be served best by issuing dealing orders when the relevant market is open.
  • You should not speculate using money you cannot afford to lose.
  • We have taken all reasonable care to ensure that all statements of fact and opinion contained in these publications are fair and accurate in all material aspects.
  • Investors should seek appropriate professional advice from their stockbroker or other adviser if any points are unclear.
  • These publications give general advice only, and the investments mentioned may not necessarily be suitable for any individual.
  • These publications may recommend securities listed on overseas stock exchanges. Investors may incur extra charges when dealing in these securities and should check with their stockbroker before dealing.
  • Changes in exchange rates may have an adverse effect on the value of the value or price of these investments in sterling terms.
