Investing in your future

Invest online

With interest rates low and things like tax and inflation nibbling away at the real value of your money, it makes more sense than ever to think differently about savings.

If you want to protect your income or are after higher returns over the medium to long term, it could be worth adding investments to your savings plan.

Taking a closer look at investments

You may be wondering how to make use of tax shelters like ISAs and pensions. Perhaps you're attracted to the potential rewards that investments can bring but are unsure about your attitude to risk. Or you know what you'd like to achieve but don't quite know how to go about it.

If you’re ready to make your own investment decisions without the help of a financial adviser, you can check out our online investments product range, read our brochures and terms and conditions and apply online or by phone. When you apply, we will first take you through a quick registration process for our investments service. You’ll then be able to complete your application.

If you’d prefer to get help, you will need to seek professional financial advice before investing.

In the investment world, higher risks are associated with potentially higher rewards and lower risks with lower returns. But investing in the stock market is not the same as paying money into a deposit account. Share prices can fall and you may lose your money, which means investing is not for everyone. If you are uncomfortable with taking any risks at all, investments are not for you.

Never invest money you can’t afford to lose and always aim to leave it invested for a minimum of five years.
