Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

May 11, 2017

Hello and welcome to the fourth of five special episodes of Informed Choice Radio as we celebrate Financial Planning Week 2017.

If you're one of the millions of people in the UK who could do with improving their overall financial “fitness”, Financial Planning Week is especially for you.

It's a consumer awareness campaign which helps you take some simple steps to kick start your future. This year's campaign is taking place from 8th to 12th May 2017, right across the UK.

In this episode of the podcast, following three days of guests talking about various parts of the Financial Planning journey, it's a solo-round. I'm going to talk about investing with confidence.

I share five key points to consider when investing money:

1 - Link your investing goals to your financial goals

2 - Consider attitude to risk and capacity for risk

3 - Diversify across major asset classes

4 - Rebalance your portfolio once a year

5 - Don't watch the news
