Choosing your own investments


Shares mean you own a part of a company. The price of a share depends on the supply and demand of that particular share.


Funds offer a collective investment where professional fund managers pool together investors’ money and invest on their behalf.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

An ETF is a fund which tracks an index like the FTSE 100 and trades like a share. ETFs enable you to invest cost-effectively in entire markets with one security.
