What is Investing?


Investing isn’t as scary as it sounds, but it’s the complete opposite of saving. Saving is putting some of your cash away in a bank account and watching it earn a tiny amount of interest each year, 1% to 2.5%. Safe, secure & predictable.

Investing on the other hand is pretty much gambling your money, you take a risk with it. If everything goes well you earn more money from your investment…the higher the risk, the higher the potential reward.

You can pretty much invest in anything:

  • Shares
  • Mutual Funds
  • Bonds
  • Property
  • Cars
  • Wine
  • Art

What Are The Best Investment Platforms?

Hargreaves Lansdown
All-in-One Solution

If your looking to start investing and want to research, and actually make your own investments in stocks & shares, then Hargreaves Landsdown is one of the best trading plaforms in my opinion. You can use your stocks & shares ISA allowance with HL which is a huge benefit!

Invest with absolutely no hassle

I'm a big fan of Nutmeg, I started using them when I first started to invest a bit of my salary every month and just wanted to use something simple that delivered results.
