To add some context, the idea of these collections is to a) give people a quick way to find securities that’re related to popular themes b) help less experienced investors discover those themes.
Right now Collections are a combination of filters & sorting. When you tap into a Collection, you can see which filters have been applied in order to create the collection.
So the ‘Big in the UK’ Collection looks like this.
having to tap into the collection to see that isn’t perfect but hopefully the info’s pretty discoverable.
However we don’t display the sort that’s been applied in that view, which means that when you’re viewing the ‘Invest like Buffett’ Collection, which is sorted by Quality & Value, you have to tap into the filter options to see the sort order.
Displaying the sorting that’s applied to search results / Collections is on our roadmap so that should help.
Looking into the future though, you can imagine a much more sophisticated version of Collections - maybe cards with artwork and as you say, a description of the Collection, perhaps even links to blog posts looking into the theme in more depth. We’ll prioritise that sort of development based on feedback like this
To answer this question - yes it’s every fund in the Freetrade universe. Sadly we don’t have a way to create a Collection of their stocks yet but if this is a popular Collection we’ll consider adding that too.
