Savings and Investments

Savings accounts offer a low-risk, safe and accessible way for you to look after your money.  However, if interest rates reduce, your returns may be affected. If you are looking for a higher return on your money – you might want to consider investing. There is a higher level of risk involved, but it could help your money grow faster. 

 Remember: When investing, your capital is at risk. If you are unsure about investing, seek independent advice. Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.

Ways to invest

There’s a wide range of options to suit all levels of investment experience. Choose to manage your own investment portfolio or select a risk level and let us do it for you.
