Investments

Successful investing is about much more than putting your money stocks and shares. Initially you must decide what your future will look like, and then work backwards to understand what will be required to achieve these goals.

If you’re thinking about investing for the first time, it may seem a rather daunting step. You might not be sure what the difference is between a share, a bond and a fund, let alone which one could be right for you. In reality, rather than focussing on a single product, your investment portfolio should be split between a range of asset classes.

There are various ways to ensure your savings are working as hard as they possibly can for you, At Skybound Wealth we take the time to truly understand your aspirations for the future before formulating a strategy that will allow to achieve your goals in a timely manner and in line with your attitude to risk.

We will then make various recommendations, tailor-made to you, which may include any of the following:

Passive Investments

Also known as the buy and hold strategy which is used to minimise fees and provide a long-term investment horizon. Passive managers generally believe it is difficult to out-think the market, so rather then attempting to outperform they try to match market or sector performance. Passive investing attempts to replicate market performance by constructing well-diversified portfolios of single stocks, which if done individually, would require extensive knowledge on particular sectors.

Active Investments

This form of investing takes a hands-on approach and requires that someone act in the role of fund/ portfolio. The goal of active money management is to beat the stock market’s average returns and take full advantage of short-term price fluctuations. It involves a much deeper analysis and the expertise to know when to pivot into or out of a particular stock, bond, or any asset.

Discretionary Fund Management

Discretionary Fund Management is when an investment professional known as a Discretionary Fund Manager (DFM) builds and manages a portfolio of investments on your behalf. The managers take into account how much you have to invest, the level of risk you are prepared to take, your financial goals, and your tax position. Once the portfolio has been built, the Discretionary Fund Manager will make ongoing decisions about the portfolio using their own discretion.

Investment FAQ’S

What is a Unit Trust?

Maintained by a Fund Manager, a Unit Trust typically allows you to invest in around 100 stocks and shares. Unit Trusts provide many other tax friendly benefits to investors.

What is a Stock?

Whilst investing in stocks (often referred to as Shares) has the potential to deliver higher returns than other investments such as bonds, there is significantly more risk involved. This risk is magnified when you have a large percentage of your investments tied up in a single stock. Investing in shares may be more suited to someone willing to accept medium or higher risk.

What Is a Bond?

Simply put, a bond is a loan to a government or corporation. When you invest in a bond, you are lending money to the organisation that issued it. In return for the investment, the issuer delivers an agreed level of income in the form of a rate of interest. At an agreed date, the government or corporation will return the face value (the original issue price) of the bond, known as the maturity value.
