What is investing?
Investing is different from putting your cash in a savings account to earn interest. You’re essentially buying investments, for example, shares in a company, that you think you’ll be able to sell for a higher price later. You can either buy these investments yourself or invest in a fund where the fund manager chooses the investments for you. If you're saving into a pension, it's likely you'll be investing in funds.
There are no guarantees with investing. You’re taking a risk with your money in the hope that it will be worth more over time.
