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.
