Welcome to our Guide to Investing. It might seem complicated – and it isn’t for everyone – but investing can make your money work a lot harder. Whatever stage of life you’ve reached and whatever plans you may have for the future, you want your money to earn the best return possible without taking undue risk. That’s why it’s important to invest in a way that’s right for you and that will meet your goals.
By setting aside some of your money now in investments that could appreciate over time, you’ll set yourself up for greater financial security in the future. Whether you want to build a pension for retirement, save a deposit for a house or generate extra income to cover an expense, any savings you may have been able to accrue that are not required to finance your day-to-day living may provide a more substantial return if you invest them.
Whether it’s a large sum or a small amount, there are many different ways to invest to suit most people. Once you’ve made the decision to invest, you can either invest a lump sum or invest monthly to build up your investments over time. In broad terms, those with a medium to long-term investment goal – five years or more – should consider stocks and shares given the historically higher returns offered by stock markets and to protect their savings against the impact of inflation.
