Put Investing At The Top Of Your 'To Do' List

24 February 2017

We all have an endless lists of things to do - or as we call it ‘life admin’. Is investing just one of many items on that list?

We are all busy and a new study finds the combination of balancing work, relationships, family, finances and fitness intensifies as we reach 30.

The research, carried out by Selftrade from Equiniti, the online investment platform, reveals that people in their 30s are at the busiest point of their lives with the least free time and the longest to-do lists. In fact, time pressures are such that one in three (35%) say they NEVER find themselves with nothing to do.

Mark Taylor, CCO (Chief Customer Office) of Selftrade from the Equiniti Group recognises that we all have a myriad of money management related tasks that we should be getting on with. Mark comments: 

Spend some time facing your money matters head on. Look at what you spend, and what you save. Ask yourself whether you’re getting enough out of your cash savings? With rates at an all-time low, it may be time to consider putting some money into the stock market. Whatever decisions you make, spending time thinking about your financial future now can reap rewards in the long run.

With interest rates still at an all-time low, many people are choosing to put their longer-term savings into the stock market because it has been shown that, while there are no guarantees, the returns are likely to be greater than with cash.

For as little as £2 a day, you can start investing in a Selftrade Stocks and Shares ISA. That's time well spent. Find out more about how investing in for your future is #TimeWellSpent.
