How to Invest

Options on how to invest your money.

Invest in your future

There are a variety of ways that you can invest but one of the first points to address is whether you want to put aside money every single month, or if you prefer to make single payments of larger amounts when it suits you. Both methods have their pros and cons so it all depends on what works best for you; whether you are saving for retirement, to pay for your children’s education or any other life goal.

In some cases, a combination of methods may be the right solution, but it all depends on what is right for you in your unique situation. We all need to invest in our financial futures and we will work with you not only to set up plans, but also to manage them over the years.

Speak to one of our experienced and qualified independent advisers about the right investment solutions for you.

Monthly Investment

  • Most people are employees and are paid monthly, so it makes sense to set money aside every time you get paid.
  • Regular premium plans offer the easy discipline of money being paid to a plan automatically, before you can spend it on something else.
  • No risk of forgetting a payment.
  • No need to worry about fluctuations as you drip-feed into markets, known as dollar cost averaging.
  • Low premiums so a great way to get started.
  • No need to save for ages before you can get started.
  • Choice of investment terms to suit your needs.
  • Good choice of investment funds that can be tailored to suit personal preference.
  • Ongoing management means your money is looked after.

Lump Sum Investment

  • If you have already accumulated cash, you can invest a lump sum, from as little as £10,000 or $15,000.
  • No need to commit to making regular payments so useful for those who receive irregular income, commission or bonuses.
  • Option to make further investments as and when suits you.
  • Good choice of investment funds that can be tailored to suit personal preference.
  • Ongoing management means your money is looked after.
  • Larger sums give a bigger choice of investment funds, up to 80,000 options in some cases.
  • You can benefit from tax-efficient structures.
  • More discipline may be required to achieve savings goals as the onus is on the individual to make payments.
  • Flexibility of withdrawals.
  • Less administration can mean lower costs.
