Savings and Investments

Saving and investing is about protecting and benefiting you and your future. However, savings are very different to investments. 

Savings are generally used for protection. Shorter term funds that can be accessed quickly for things such as emergencies, holidays and peace of mind.

Investments are something else, but Becketts can help show you the right combination of savings and investments to suit your stage of life. 

Investments require a longer period, usually at least 5 years. You must be comfortable putting money away for the longer term and to see month to month fluctuations in performance. Investments are not guaranteed and can go down in value as well as up, but the long term benefits of a well-diversified and managed investment solution cannot be disputed.​
 
There are many types of investments out there and can be quite overwhelming for the potential investor. It is important that you do your research and understand where you are placing your money, the risks associated to that investment and establish it is the right vehicle for your financial goals.

Typical investments are mostly placed into the following asset classes:
Stocks and Shares –  this is a stake in a company 
Property – money invested in a physical building (Residential or Commercial)
Fixed Interest & Gilts – a loan made to a company or government in return for a specified rate of interest 
Commodities – such as oil, rubber and gold.
Cash – saving deposits
