Everybody needs to invest otherwise their capital will be eroded purely by the rate of inflation. Where to invest is a major dilemma faced by investors. Another dilemma is “what do I want from my investment?” The measure of a good investment is not how much money you earn, but whether or not the value of your investment has increased your future purchasing power?
How do investments work? Financial Intermediaries like banks, pension funds, and the stock market channel money from savers to borrowers. Borrowers create businesses & factories. They build roads, cars and schools. They research cures for cancer. They discover new technologies to make our lives better. True financial investment requires economic forces to work, they require time and the payoff for the borrower and the investor is future purchasing power.
Risk and Time are two elements you must fully consider when making financial decisions. Any investment designed to make money quickly is not an investment but instead speculation or gambling.
We specialise in providing good investment solutions suitable for your needs, objectives and attitude towards investment risk. As you know throughout life your investment requirements will change. You may start out saving money to put a deposit down for your first home. Then saving into a pension fund for future retirement or saving into a savings plan to fund school and university fees for your children. Whatever your reasoning, most people have placed an investment at some point in life.
