Savings coming off a good rate?

Considering investing could be a smart move.

Why consider investing when your savings mature? 

When interest rates begin to drop, it's time to start thinking about how to protect your savings for the future.

Save or invest: what’s the difference? 

Savings accounts can help you put money aside for short-term needs. Investing is for when you want to grow your money over the long-term. 

Putting money into a savings account does mean that the balance won’t drop. However, it’s unlikely to grow much, and rates can be eroded by raising retail prices (inflation).

So, should you invest?

Investing increases the chances of growing your money over the long term (that’s 5 years or more).

When you invest, you can still take your money back if you need it. But the longer you can invest it, the better gains you may get. 

If £10,000 was invested 10 years ago, it would now be worth £11,217.99 in a savings account or £14,859.47 in an investment fund
