Investments

Today's investor not only faces an uncertain financial climate but also a bewildering array of various savings and investment plans and schemes. The financial world is changing at a rapid pace and increasingly traditional forms of savings and investments such as banks and building societies may no longer offer the best return for your money. At Bateman Financial Management our aim is to guide you through the maze of investment options to build a portfolio that is tailored towards you and your needs. Before we make any recommendations we undertake a detailed analysis of your requirements and aspirations including your attitude to risk, your targets for income growth, the length of time you wish to invest, as well as potential tax opportunities.

Whether you have built up a tidy nest egg through savings, received an inheritance, taken a lump sum from your pension or won money on the lottery, we understand the importance of investing your money wisely so that its spending power is protected for the future.


Your attitude to risk

Key to determining the type of investment we recommend and manage on your behalf is your attitude to risk and volatility. We understand that categorising your attitude to risk is difficult – everyone sees risk differently - and our dedicated and experienced team will work with you to determine a level of risk in your investments that you are comfortable with. At all times we will strive to ensure that you fully understand the potential implications and rewards of your investments.


Understanding Risk

Generally speaking, higher risk investments potentially will yield greater returns with an increased chance of losing money. Lower risk investments usually provide a lesser return but with greater security for your money. There are other factors to take into account in understanding risk. How long will you invest? And where? Will you spread your investment out into broad, separate areas, or into one specialist area?

Our highly trained and experienced team will be on hand to guide you through these initial discussions and offer you advice enabling you to reach an informed decision.


Warning

The value of your investments can go down as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested.
