Investments for beginners



Savings and Investments

Savings accounts are an easy way to keep your money safe. Although they’re low risk, your returns can be affected by changing interest rates. So you might want to think about investing your money as an option instead. Investments carry a higher level of risk, but could help your money to grow faster.

Remember: When investing, your capital is at risk. If you are unsure about investing, seek independent advice. Tax treatment is subject to your individual circumstances and is subject to change in the future.

Ways to invest

Manage your own investment portfolio or select a risk level and let us do it for you. We have a wide range of options to suit all levels of investment experience.
