Twelve months ago, the market was a very different place. There were huge fears among investors that a disorderly breakup of the eurozone was imminent. Shares, from across a number of sectors were on sale, offering great yields. The FTSE 100 was 12% lower than it is today.

With interest rates on cash deposits so low, I decided to move £4,600 from a cash ISA into my broker's Self-Select ISA. I expected to make a return on shares that beat what I was getting on cash. I never expected this would be the start of a run of investments that would see the original £4,600 turn into more than £15,000.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
