Investments are something you buy or put your money into to get a profitable return. Most people choose from four main types of investment, known as ‘asset classes’:

• Cash – the savings you put in a bank or building society account
• Fixed interest securities (also called bonds) – you loan your money to a company or government
• Shares – you buy a stake in a company
• Property – you invest in a physical building, whether commercial or residential

There are other types of investments available too, including:

•Commodities like oil, coffee, corn, rubber or gold
•Foreign currency
•Contracts for difference, where you bet on shares gaining or losing value
•Collectibles like art and antiques
