Money On Deposit? Make It Work For You Now!

Do you have money on deposit? Are you just leaving it there? Have you considered starting a regular savings plan or putting a lump sum you have accumulated in an investment? If not, then you really need to understand why now is such a great time to start saving and making your money work for you.

Don’t get me wrong, everyone should have some money on deposit (ideally 3 months net salary). Deposit accounts are accessible and won’t decrease in value (in the short term!).

Current Dilemma

The problem is that for almost 12 years deposit rates have been in free fall. This means banks, building societies and credit unions cannot give you a real return on your savings.

In addition to this, Central Banks (who control monetary policy) need to keep interest rates as low as possible for at least another 5 years. This is to help keep the cost of borrowing low so that businesses and households can function and grow.

Solution

So the only solution to growing your savings is to invest.

I’m not suggesting people start emptying their deposit accounts and start trading stocks and shares every morning (this is not Paddy Power stuff!!).

An investment should be spread into a range of diverse assets (i.e. stocks, bonds, commodities and property) and the proportion in each asset class should be determined by what level of risk you are comfortable with and how long you would like to invest for.

There are a wide variety of very attractive regular savings plans and investment bond options available. The fund or funds you invest in is very specific to your needs and objectives so it is important you meet with a qualified advisor who will help you establish the best fit for you.

So, what kind of returns should you expect?

Historically those investors that have had more of their fund invested in equities (i.e. global stocks and shares) have performed the best.

But even the more conservative savers have outperformed deposit rates by taking on a cautious level of risk.

Performance table

The key to this is to choose a fund that you are comfortable investing in. And one which is designed to help you reach your financial goals.

Next steps

The next step to take is to talk to a financial adviser – you can contact us here at Coleman Financial Planning.

Testimonials

I met Daragh to look at setting up a 2nd pension which he gave me great advice on and helped me setup. He then went through some other areas like the life insurance attached to my mortgage and came up with a significantly cheaper option providing identical cover. I also setup a saving scheme with him as well. He explained everything really well and I would not hesitate to recommend him for anyone looking for sound financial advice which is explained in terms that you don’t need to be an accountant to understand!”
