7 Reasons To Start Investing Now

If you want to grow your money, perhaps with the aim of boosting your financial future, now could be a good time to invest.

With any investment, careful consideration is needed. The following points could help to clarify your decision.

1. The earlier the better

The longer you have your money invested, the more likely you are to ride out any fluctuations in the market.

2. Something is better than nothing

You don’t have to invest huge sums in order to become an investor. With impulseSave®, you can open an account from £50 and top up your investment at any time from as little as £1.

Topping up in small amounts can make a difference, and you may find that you reach your financial goal quicker by topping up when you have money available.

3. Control over your plan

True Potential Investor is designed to suit the way you want to manage your money. You are in control, with a range of steps to personalise your experience. You’ll set your investment goal alongside the time you want to take to reach it.

You can then pick your risk profile, determining how cautious or aggressive you want to be. Then choose your investment amount, account type, and which of the ten True Potential Portfolios you want to be invested in.

4. Finding an investor plan that suits you

No matter your age or circumstances, you’ll find an investor type that suits you. Whether you’re a family investor, a modern investor, a savvy investor, or mature investor, you’ll find more information here on how investing could work for you.

5. Advanced Diversification

We use a process called Advanced Diversification, blending together tried and tested multi-asset investment strategies. We work with UBS, Allianz, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Columbia Threadneedle, Schroders, SEI, Close Brothers, and 7IM.

This diversified and long term strategy could help you to navigate market volatility in our changing world.

6. Technology

Advances in technology have helped to make investing easier than ever. At True Potential we are at the cutting edge, with tracking via iOS, Android and desktop.

You’ll get a fuller picture of your financial performance, with the ability to track 24/7 from a range of devices. With impulseSave® you’ll also benefit from the capability of topping up with ease.

7. Closing the Savings Gap

Saving and investing could be very important if you want to avoid a Savings Gap.

Our own research has highlighted that only a minority of savers will have enough funds for a comfortable retirement. There’s no better time than the present, when starting to think about how to close your own personal Savings Gap.

With investing, your capital is at risk. Investments can fluctuate in value and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Tax rules can change at any time. This blog is not personal financial advice.
