What is investing and why should we do it?

  • Past performance of an investment is no guide to its performance in the future.
  • Investments, or income from them, can go down as well as up.
  • Risk can be brought about by the performance of world markets, interest rates, taxes on income and capital, and foreign exchange rates.
  • You may not necessarily get back any of the amount you invested.
  • Smaller company shares can be relatively illiquid, meaning they could be harder to trade, which makes them higher risk.
  • Content and information about potential investments are designed for general use, and so cannot be considered personal to your circumstances or your financial position.
  • Don’t drink and invest at the same time!
