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.

How to Invest 500,000 Pounds This Year

How to Invest 500,000 Pounds This Year? Ask the Experts at Compare the Financial Markets

Whether you have received an inheritance, sold a hefty property, or prospered in business, 500,000 pounds is a nice sum to have, and it opens up for you many investment opportunities. Consider every step you make carefully, and set targets, and take precautions, on how to invest 500,000 pounds this year.

The first thing you must decide is whether you want to put some of the money in the bank to receive interest. You must know though that interest rates in the UK have significantly dropped in recent years, and although they are slowly recovering, they remain on the whole too small to enable you to live off the interest. You can get about 2.5-3% a year though, and in 30 years or so you'd have a million in the bank. To get better interest rates consider investing some of your money in offshore savings accounts.

Now back to conventional investments. London properties, and especially flats in good locations, can bring you a steady source of income in the long run, if you choose to buy them and let them out. With 500,000 pounds you can buy one or two nice flats depending on wether it is in or outside of London. If you're wondering how to invest 500,000 pounds with as little hassle as possible, buying flats can be the best choice for you.

If you'd rather make more aggressive short-term investments, aiming for quick returns, you should consider investing in student housing projects across the UK, government bonds and company shares, alternative investments in green energy, art, fine wine, foreign investments in rising Asian and African firms.
