Invest in private companies for high risks and high rewards

If you are looking for an imaginative use for your Isa money, you could try putting some of it into private companies. Many of today’s tech giants remained private until long after their value had passed the $1 billion mark, so most of their dynamic growth happened when the bulk of ordinary investors could not easily access them. Spotify was worth $29.5 billion when it floated on the stock market last year, while Facebook had a market value of $104 billion when it launched in 2012.
