Week 1 round-up

It has been a very full first week and you will have learned much about the need for effective investment planning and some of the initial building blocks for your strategy.

You looked at why investing for the future is essential for households – particularly in the light of the evidence that we, in the UK, aren’t doing enough to save for the future.

You looked at the first things you need to consider when devising your investment plan and at the importance of the time horizon for your investments and the future spending plans that your investments will support.

You then looked at the drivers of two key determinants of investment returns – interest rates and equity markets.

Next week, you’ll start to examine in detail the characteristics of the spectrum of investment products available for you to employ within your investment strategy.
