The following are a number of key issues that are relevant to investment choice:
- Client’s financial aims and objectives
- Savings/investment period: short-term, medium-term, long-term. What amount of cash would you need to cover unexpected emergencies?
- Level of risk/Client attitude to risk: 100% capital security, medium level risk with the chance of earning an above average return, high risk with no upside or downside on the return or ultimate value of the initial investment e.g. stock market investments.
- Taxation implications: what is the most tax efficient choice?
Saving and investing is all about making your money work as hard as possible for you. There are a number of factors to consider when considering where best to place you money:
- How long are you investing for?
- Do you need access to your money?
- What level of risk are you prepared to tolerate in order to aim to achieve a better return on your money?
- Management fees and charges.
