Savings and Investments
When planning your finances, it is important to distinguish between savings and investments.
Savings are generally funds that you set aside that can be accessed relatively quickly. These savings are often for a specific need or purchase, like a holiday or a new car.
The most common way of saving is into a bank account (‘deposit’ account) where the money can be accessed in an emergency, and for every £1 you put in, you will get £1 back and possibly some interest. In other words, the original capital is guaranteed.
Investments are designed to be held for a longer term, usually at least five years. You need to be comfortable with tying up this money for a period of time and should not consider investments unless you have some savings in place. Most investments are not guaranteed to return your money in full, although do offer the prospect of potentially higher returns than deposit accounts. Returns, risk and volatility are the factors that will determine a suitable place for your investments.

Past performance should not be taken as a guide to future performance. The underlying value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up, and you may not recover the full amount of your original investment.
