Investing for beginners


This is a serious video about investing in the stock market. Crucially you will end up with realistic expectations.

My father was a stockbroker. The only thing that every annoyed him were banks. Currently their 'interest rates don't even cover inflation! Personally I have got very keen on 'tracker funds' which simply track the stock market and are very cheap and usually perform as well or better than investment managers or stockbrokers - who are seldom cheap! You will often end up with a London or large city based firm rather than one around Aldershot let alone Aldershot ! However this does not matter. I have seldom met my stockbrokers. This said have a look below for financial advisers and stockbrokers that we have found with Hampshire.

Good luck!

Highly recommended Following a recommendedation I went to Mike for advice on a re-mortgage (which wasn’t a straight forward case). However I found Mike to be very professional and knowledgeable; within a week we had made an application and had it accepted. I then returned to Mike for Pension advice, again he knew his stuff and got me a great deal and dealt with all the paperwork. During both processes Mike kept me updated on the progress. I will use Mike again without hesitation if I need any further financial advice. Thank you

Would like to thank Michael for all his help with our mortgage, he has been very efficient, professional and knowledgeable. He is reliable and kept in touch every step of the way.
