Do you save or invest?
If you really want to give your money the potential to grow and you don’t need immediate access to it, think about investing it rather than just saving. You might want to invest for major life events like retirement or paying your child’s or grandchild’s university fees.
Whatever the reason, investing has historically given higher returns than saving in a bank account, but be prepared – with the potential for higher reward comes more risk. Whatever you’re putting money aside for, there’s likely to be a role for Individual Saving Accounts (ISAs).
Investing for your future
Within an ISA, you can reallocate your portfolio according to your outlook and needs at any time without losing any of the tax benefits. You can also move money from your Cash ISA to your Stocks & Shares ISA, or vice versa, as your short-term cash needs change. Read this factsheet to find out more about ISAs.
