Investing Show: How to invest and achieve long-term returns that beat inflation and low savings rates
If you have long-term savings sitting in cash then you are likely to be losing money. Inflation was revealed to have dipped to 2.6 per cent in June, this week, but cash savings accounts can’t beat this.
Yet, if you already have the short-term emergency savings that you need, funds held for the long-term can be put to more productive work and earn a higher return by being invested.
On this fortnight’s Investing Show, we’re joined by BlackRock’s Jeremy Roberts, to discuss how to invest to beat inflation. The show looks at how to think about what sums you may be able to invest and the easiest ways to do that – and how to weigh up what protection you need for your different savings pots.
Also on this episode, Simon Lambert, of This is Money, Richard Hunter, of Wilson King IM, and Nick Batsford, of Core London, discuss whether this will prove to be another testing summer for investors – and some storm clouds that may be on the horizon.
