Why invest?

Rainy days, exotic holidays, fancy cars, fairy-tale weddings – for most of us, these things are not going to happen unless we make it happen. To do any of this, we need to have money saved to pay for it – debt quickly turns into a dream-stealer we need to avoid.

Different types of funds

  • Cash funds give you the most predictable return,
    but probably won’t surprise you on the upside.
  • Multi asset funds move your assets between classes
    on your behalf – much like a shock absorber.
  • Index trackers follow the markets, they’re cheap
    as chips and can be just as satisfying.

Which fund?

Understanding how comfortable you are with risk can lead you in the right direction.

Ask yourself:

  • How long can I leave the money without touching it?
  • How much can I afford to save every month?
  • Could I add lump sums now and again?
  • How twitchy will I get if my value goes down?
