Saving & Investing
Saving and investing your money is vital to the growth of your financial prosperity. We understand that you work hard for your money, and that you want your money to begin working hard for you.
Saving is a great way of ‘storing’ money safely and putting it away for emergencies or a short-term goal. Your capital is secure, it can be accessed relatively easily and, typically, you will earn a modest rate of interest in return.
Investing requires more discipline, over a longer term to ensure that you grow your money in real terms. Investing in this manner enables you to plan for significant stages in your life, such as educating your child or planning for your retirement.
