Our latest investment insight
This guide provides investment information to help you get started and make investing part of your financial planning.
Investing means putting money aside with the expectation of generating an potential profit or income in the future.
You can invest your money in cash, property, bonds and shares to name a few.
Investing is for the medium to long term and it's important to note that your capital is at risk and the value of your investment can go up and down along the way.
Our guide is designed to help beginners understand the basics of investing to help them get started on their investment journey.
Right now nothing is certain but uncertainty‘s no reason to put your future plans on hold.
By trying to time the market you can miss possible opportunities. We believe that good investment is about “time in the market”, rather than “timing the market”.
The value of investments can go down as well as up. This means you could get back less than the amount you invest.
It's important to consider the potential reward against the risk to decide if it's worth putting your money on the line.
