Savings and investments

Savings accounts offer a low-risk and accessible way to look after your money. If you’re looking to make some of your money work harder, you might also consider investing.

Remember, the value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice. Tax treatment depends on personal circumstances and may be subject to change.
