Risk warnings and important information
None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.
All statements concerning the tax treatment of products and their benefits are based on our understanding of current tax law and HM Revenue and Customs’ practice. Levels and bases of tax relief are subject to change.

3 Essential Mistakes You Want to Avoid When Making Financial Investments

Making successful financial investments often depends not so much on discovering excellent opportunities or taking great risks as on avoiding big investment mistakes. That's why having a financial advisor comes in handy. Whether or not you have an advisor already, make sure you avoid...

1. Getting investment advice from friends, colleagues, neighbours, and other well-doers. In the world of financial investments, free tips and advice are oftentimes unhelpful. Misadvised British investors continue to lose tens, even hundreds of thousands of pounds after basing their investment decisions on tips and advice they get from the people around them. You must always remember that even when the person giving you the advice wants to do you good, he or she is almost never an expert.

2. Failing to rebalance your investments. Every year, some of your investments will outperform their expectations, while others will under perform. To ensure that your investments remain sustainable in the long term, and to balance your portfolio, it's important that you redistribute profits to those projects that you feel confident with even if so far they have not performed as well as you would have liked.

3. Being a timorous investor who is more interested in saving for retirement than in upping profits. If securing your retirement is your main concern, put your money in an off-shore savings account and enjoy the benefit of nice interest rates. But if you really want to make money with financial investments, then you must take some risks: high-end property investments, African investments, fine wine investments, contemporary art investments, shares in biotech companies, Asian and South American mutual investment funds, and so on. You can't get rich if you don't roll the dice from time to time.
