Fixed Interest Investments
A fixed interest investment is where you invest your money and are paid a set amount of interest until your capital is repaid.
When you buy shares you buy part of a company.
Money from individual investors is pooled and invested by a fund manager.
Property is another common investment, and you can find out more about investing in property at the Hot Property Investments.
There are also investments such as property schemes, contributory mortgage schemes, agricultural and forestry schemes, and futures contracts. Some of these investments are complicated, and if you are interested in them it would be wise to contact a Financial Adviser.
