Good evening I'm sure graham has a thread on this somewhere but cannot find it. My question is as above - what to do with cash in an ISA. Due to the almost non existent interest paid by aj bell I wonder if there is a way of earning say 1.5% Apr in an investment (I'm thinking etf's etc) that would approximate (risk wise) as…
