Prudent investment planning can help achieve a more profitable return on capital and massively improve tax efficiency, rather than simply holding funds in a deposit based savings account.
Although the idea of investing in real assets to provide for financial security is gaining wider acceptance, for the would-be investor, finding the most appropriate investment can be a daunting prospect. There is a whole range of opportunities open to the investor wishing to generate capital growth or extra income from their capital. Investment options include a plethora of asset types such as stocks and shares, property, gilts and bonds. With each type of investment there will usually be different features, benefits and specific risks involved. Tax efficiency and charges also need to be carefully considered.
