If you’re looking to grow your money, our expert advisers can talk you through the options that might be right for you.
If you have long-term goals and aspirations, investing your money could give you a better chance of reaching them.
We’re here to help you work out if investment planning could help you achieve a brighter future.
Like many people, you probably have long-term ambitions. And they’ll usually come with certain financial considerations. Investing your money could prove a successful way of achieving your long-term goals.
Whilst putting your cash into savings accounts is a very sensible approach, savings alone could limit how much your money is able to grow. Investing offers the potential to achieve stronger long term returns, so long as you are intending to invest for at least five years and are comfortable with the risks involved.
By investing with our advice, our aim is to grow your money by a greater extent than is available through cash savings accounts to help you achieve your goals. Although funds are not like bank and building society savings accounts. It does mean placing your capital at risk, as its value can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invest.
Having a good level of savings for the future is great. It can help you with short-term goals like going on holiday or buying a car. It’s also useful to have savings you can fall back on for just-in-case moments – like an unexpected bill.
With interest rates having stayed low for more than a decade, it’s difficult to grow savings over the long-term. And that’s why investing offers you the opportunity to achieve higher returns.
To have a better chance of making more of your money, investing means putting your capital at risk. There are different levels of risk you can take, and our advisers can help you consider an approach that’s right for you.
