Choose an investment which suits your short and long term investment plans. The more effort you put into choosing a managed investment scheme, the better chance you have of choosing a scheme that is suitable for you. Make sure you have thought about what you want to achieve financially and how soon you want to achieve it. You should also think about what type of risk you are willing to take. For example, do you want a long term investment with low risk, like an education fund for your grandchildren, or do you want a more aggressive investment, like a fund that only invests in small start-up companies? Ask friends, colleagues, ...
money with others to participate in a wider range of investments than feasible for most individual investors, and to share the costs and benefits of doing so. Terminology varies with country but collective investment schemes are often referred to as mutual funds , investment funds , managed funds , or simply funds (note: mutual fund has a specific meaning in the US). Around the world large markets have developed around collective investment and these account for a substantial portion of all trading on major stock exchanges . Collective investments are promoted with a wide range of investment aims either targeting specific ...
Pensions versus Property Investing and Do We Need So Many Housing ...
It must be the new government having an effect on me (or maybe it is the sun) but I have decided to go a bit political this week. Base rate remains on hold this month but one thing that won’t be staying on hold is the mechanism that is used to up rate pensions to account for inflation. It looks like the lower CPI inflation measure, not the historically higher RPI will be used in future when your pension funds come to work out what you will get in income from your little pot of money that you had to work to age 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71… for. (Yes, the age is going up) Property v Traditional Pensions Those who did not ... market research, surveys and trends
Matthew Yglesias » Why Are We Democratizing Investing?
Strategies that are available to the average investor—buying international stocks as well as domestic ones, for example—generally don’t work. Strategies that do work generally aren’t accessible. Which I think helps highlight one of the most-pernicious but least-discussed trends of the past thirty years, the drive to replace defined-benefit pensions with subsidized savings/investment schemes like 401(k)s. This democratization of investing has been celebrated by many, and memorably lampooned by Thomas Frank , but rarely subjected to adequate scrutiny. The fact of the matter seems to be, however, that average people ... market research, surveys and trends

Some turning to law firms to invest funds
Law firms investing client money is an unusual practice elsewhere in the United States, but has been commonplace in Boston since the 19th century, when merchants would leave their fortunes in the hands of lawyers while at sea. Now, with increasing distrust of the investment community because of the banking crisis and the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, several firms say, a growing number of wealthy New Englanders are having their investments managed by law firms instead of traditional brokers or financial institutions. No organization tracks this segment of the market, but between them, the Boston law firms Choate Hall & Stewart, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
PM slammed for investment U-turn
The Prime Minister's first pledge after taking over as Conservative Party leader was to slash greenhouse gasses and promote eco-friendly energy. But he has shelved a �1 billion fund to invest in new British companies using green technology. The money was supposed to be used by a Green Investment Bank which would plough cash into firms building offshore wind and wave farms, green power stations and other ambitious projects. It would have come from the sale of assets such as the Channel Tunnel rail link and the Port of Dover. Now any cash from any asset sell-offs will go back into government coffers to pay off debts. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Beginner Investing: Young Investor Where do I start?, online ...
I have been long interesting in putting my foot in the shallow end so to speak and I am just wondering where to go from here.  I am 26 years old and have a 401K plan with 20,000 and just about no debt.  The only debt I have is a low interest federal school loan for 15K.  I don't have a house yet and my car is a 95 with 186000 miles but runs well.  I have always heard starting earlier makes it easier, so I thought I would wait to buy a car or house and fund my investments first.  Is this a good strategy? And where should I start?  I have looked at Vanguard retirement funds, simply because they ...
Has anybody lost money by investing in MUTUAL FUNDS? - Yahoo! Answers
Over the long-term, it is very difficult to lose money in mutual funds (unless you just buy ones that you should have KNOWN were a bad idea! "We promise 50% return every year!", etc.) When you buy a single stock, you are betting that particular company will continue to succeed; if you buy a typical mutual fund, they "pool" your cash with others and buy stock in sometimes THOUSANDS of different companies, thus diluting the impact of any particular company failing. Most funds are "managed" and have supposedly smart people deciding what to buy and sell and when to do so. Unit Trusts are a similar concept to mutual funds, except ...
