Saving for the future

Should you be looking to invest soon?

When you are young, saving for your retirement may not be at the top of your priority list but perhaps it is something that you should be thinking about. After all, the more time your money is left invested, the more time it has to grow.

Whether it is retirement you want to save for, school fees for the kids or to repay the remainder of your mortgage, equity-based investment could be the first step to a very different future for you and your loved ones.

Although building societies and bank deposits are an important part of an investment portfolio, equity-based investments tend to grow at a much faster pace, helping you achieve your financial goals sooner rather than later.

With the rapid growth of the internet, times are changing and most investments today are placed via platforms meaning that online investment management is becoming very popular.

It is essential, however, that you explore your options in full before deciding to make an investment and understand the risks involved. Investing in stocks and shares is unlike a bank or building society account where your money is secure and readily accessible. The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount invested. Ideally, you should take a long-term view of at least five years when investing in stocks and shares.

Online investment management may seem like a whirlwind but it really doesn't need to be as complicated as you may think.
