About Steps to Investing

If you’re new to investing, this website is for you. And if you’re an existing investor looking to improve your skills and knowledge, you might find some useful information too.

Steps to Investing is an independent company set up to help people get started on their own investment journeys. We are sponsored by Janus Henderson Investors who is one of the UK’s leading investment managers with a history dating back to 1934.

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.

Our service offers you:

  • a clear and comprehensive explanation of the investment process
  • tools to help you understand how investment trusts perform, and the costs of buying them
  • lots of short videos with clear jargon-free explanations
  • a full understanding of what’s available in the market to help you choose what’s right for you
  • ways of enhancing your investment strategy
  • Steps to Investing was created by a small team of people who have over 30 years working in financial services. We all started out knowing little or nothing about investing, and have learned a lot over the years, much of which has helped but Steps to Investing together.

All investing carries a risk to your money. We have built this site specifically to look in depth at risk and how to approach it.

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.
