Savings and Investments

.on the beftis of investment advice At First Service we understand that the idea of investments can sometimes be daunting and complex but with the right financial advice, they can be used effectively to build your financial plan.


When planning your finances, it is important to distinguish the difference between savings and investments. Savings are generally funds that you set aside for the short term, but can be accessed relatively quickly. These savings are often for a specific need or purchase, like a holiday or a new car. The most common way of ‘saving’ is into a bank account (‘deposit’ account) where the money can be accessed in an emergency, and for every £1 you put in, you could potentially get £1 back with some interest.

Investments are designed to be held for a longer term, usually at least 5 years. There are a number of ways to hold investments with varying tax impacts and we take into account your objectives, attitude towards investment risk and timeframe to determine the suitability of an investment. With the vast array of options and products to choose from, trusted financial advice has never been so important. 

We provide independent and impartial advice on the following areas:

  • Stocks and Shares ISA, Lifetime ISA’s,
  • General Investment Accounts
  • Bonds
  • Pensions
  • Venture Capital Trust (VCT), Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)
