Make the right choices

What can I invest in?

The right investment advice can help you protect and grow your wealth in the most tax-efficient way. However, with such a diverse array of investment options on offer, it’s essential that you make the right choices. Each type of investment comes with its own risks. As with any investment, it’s important to consider your financial goals and risk tolerance carefully before making any decisions. Here are some of the options we can help you with:


money market funds and other low-risk investments provide the lowest potential return of all the investment options but are also the safest. It can be a good option for short-term savings goals or while waiting to invest in other assets.


ISAs offer a range of investment options, including stocks, bonds and cash. The benefits include tax-free returns, no Capital Gains Tax and flexibility. However, there are limits to how much can be invested in an ISA each year, and the returns may not be as high as other investments.


Investing in equities (stocks and shares) can provide high long-term returns and the ability to earn dividend income. However, stocks and shares can also be volatile and risky, with prices fluctuating rapidly, based on market conditions and company performance.


Bonds are fixed-income investments representing a loan to the issuer. Investing in bonds can provide a steady stream of income and a more predictable return than equities. However, bonds can be affected by fluctuations in the interest rate or the issuer’s credit rating.

Your investment preferences

Understanding risk is a vital part of the investing equation.

But it’s also very significant for us to understand your investment preferences.

Ethical investment is becoming an increasingly high priority for investors.

Climate awareness and treating and protecting sustainable assets and services can be an integral part of the investing criteria for some. Investments demonstrating responsibility shown by companies towards people or the environment can also be factored into modern investment solutions, whether in a pension or investment. If making a difference by positive impact investing is central to your beliefs and values, we’ll work with you to build a bespoke solution that meets these preferences.

Stress test and management

Not all investments perform as expected all the time. While past performance isn’t necessarily a guide to future performance, we can model the impact and consequences of unexpected under performance. We can stress test the impact of under-performance and identify the consequences should this happen on your financial position, so you can understand the risks and make the right choices.
