What is Investment Planning?

Like many people, you probably have long-term ambitions. And they’ll usually come with certain financial considerations. Investing your money could prove a successful way of achieving your long-term goals.

Whilst putting your cash into savings accounts is a very sensible approach, savings alone could limit how much your money is able to grow. Investing offers the potential to achieve stronger longer-term returns.

When you think of investing, you might associate it with the ups and downs of the stock market. But in reality, that’s not the whole story.

At Skipton we typically recommend you invest into a fund, which itself invests into a wide range of assets. It means some of your money will be invested into shares, but not all of it. Funds will also feature assets like corporate and government bonds, and even cash.

This helps to reduce the level of risk your money is exposed to. Because if one asset class or area isn’t performing well, other assets might still be generating stronger performance. It’s what we call a balanced approach to investing, and it can potentially mean a smoother financial journey for you.

With our research and advice, you can receive recommendations suited to you.

If you’ve been following the coronavirus situation closely, you’ve probably seen headlines about stock market falls.

It’s true to say the first few months of 2020 were difficult for investment funds. However, with investing it’s all about the long-term. We always recommend you invest for at least five years. This is because markets can at times experience short-term dips and volatility. But over the long-term, they usually rise.

Investing doesn’t come with guarantees. But if you’re able to tie up some of your savings for five or more years, it could prove a worthwhile approach.

Important information

By investing with our advice, our aim is to grow your money by a greater extent than is available through cash savings accounts to help you achieve your goals. Although funds are not like bank and building society savings accounts. It does mean placing your capital at risk, as its value can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invest.
