Take the steps

  • Feel confident about starting as an investor
  • Understand everything you need to know
  • Take control of your financial future and make your savings work harder

Whether you’re a first-time investor or already have some experience, Steps to Investing explains everything you need to understand and gives you the tools, information and help you need to get started on your investment journey.

We cover all kinds of investment but our focus is on investment companies, also known as investment trusts. That’s because we believe that they offer first time investors choice, diversity and opportunity.

We don’t offer financial advice, so if you’re looking for personal investment recommendations based on your own specific circumstances, you should speak to an Independent Financial Adviser.
