From an early age, we are taught that putting some money away is good practice. As you become an adult, however, your income can rise to a level where it is being saved in excess of what you might reasonably need and isn’t being allowed to meet its full potential. That is where investment comes in.
Saving vs Investing
Saving is a straightforward and sensible process that makes sure you have money available for certain larger purchases or unexpected bills and expenditures. However, interest today is almost negligible; you could be doing a lot more with your money.
If you are willing to tie up your money for a certain period of time, investments can be a fantastic way of making your cash go further. Although it isn’t absolutely certain that you will get every pound that you invest back, risk levels vary greatly, and there is potential to receive a far larger some.
At one end of the scale, towards saving, is a current account. You can withdraw and deposit cash instantly whenever you see fit and, in return, will receive a small amount of interest.
At the other end of the scale is buying shares in businesses, which you hope to grow in value. However, the money is not instantly accessible while the risk and returns are potentially much higher.
A combination of saving and investing is generally recommended, as it is not a good idea to have all of your cash tied up in an investment.
