Many people shy away from Investment Funds in search of a more secure and guaranteed return on their investments. However, a proper Investment Fund, with Investment managers behind it, should always make money as they have the power to move the underlying investments around to maximise growth as the market changes.
You can put your savings in a Deposit Account but in the current Market and its terrible interest rates, you are really only lending your money to the bank, virtually interest free. They, I’m afraid to say will not treat you the same when offering you a loan!
It’s a sign of the times that even most banks will try to steer you to Investment Funds when you go in with “New Money” as not only is it, usually, the better option right now, they make higher margins on it as they invest you in their own “in house” funds.
However, an independent Fund Manager will not be looking to use certain funds just to get a higher bonus at the end of the year, they look to the best option for their client’s money as, the bottom line for them is, the better the fund performs, the more they make by administering it.
A well run investment fund, and there are 1,000’s, is a great option for investing money. Even if the fund does not live up to its predictions (Most funds will claim an annual return of 3-6%) it should still outperform any Deposit account being offered by a bank.
Here at Pennick Blackwell, we don’t just tell our clients to invest in a Fund and watch your money grow. Through our free financial review, we examine a client’s individual situation and make our recommendations based on our fact find. And it is just that, a recommendation. If a client does not “feel it” for any reason, we understand. In our review, we would offer various investment opportunities, explain them all and get the client’s feedback in order to fully explain the situation.
Many people are under the mistaken belief that a Financial Advisor is just for the wealthy people to get more money, in reality that could not be farther from the truth.
