Some questions to ask

Here are some questions you might want to ask yourself before you get started on your research.


What are you investing towards?

Retirement, university fees, a rainy day? The investments that might be suitable for you will depend on your goals and how long you plan to invest.

What type of risks are you willing to take?

Different types of investments come with different types of risk that you should take the time to understand. The greater the return you want, the more risk you'll usually have to accept.


Important information

Please remember the value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may get back less than the amount you originally invested.

All investments carry an element of risk which may differ significantly. If you are unsure as to the suitability of any particular investment or product, you should seek professional financial advice.
