Make your money work for you


Investing may feel like it’s reserved for the privileged few or those ‘in the know’, but you don’t need to work in finance to make the most of your hard-earned funds. You might be looking for the highest returns, or simply for better growth than you can achieve from a savings account. Earning an income might be your highest priority. Whatever you want from your investments, we’ll find the right strategy for you.

Whether you are saving with a specific goal in mind or just want to achieve better returns than cash savings, investing your money in a well-diversified portfolio will give you the best chance of realising your goals.

Understanding risk and return

Successful investing is all about managing the balance between risk and return. At Aspect8 we start with a detailed questionnaire to determine your overall appetite for risk and capacity for possible loss.

Generally, the higher the potential return the higher the level of risk you need to take with your money. However, investing is not all about taking big risks and chasing impressive returns. Many of our clients focus on preserving their capital and take minimal risks, simply seeking better returns than those available from cash savings. Once we fully understand you and your situation, we can then recommend an investment strategy to suit you.

We work closely with you to make sure you understand the options, the possible risks and potential rewards, as well as helping to de-mystify the jargon. We use our knowledge and experience to recommend a strategy that is right for you, we’ll monitor your plan on an on-going basis and report to you regularly on how your portfolio is performing.

Investment accounts

Investing doesn’t always mean stocks and shares; we can help you choose between the multitude of investment options available, including:

  • Stocks and shares ISAs
  • General investment accounts
  • Onshore and offshore bonds
  • Venture capital trusts
  • Enterprise investment schemes
  • Structured investment products

Your adviser can act as a guiding hand, helping you find an investment strategy tailored to your family, lifestyle and financial aspirations.
