Is your New Year's resolution in 2021 to save money?


Each year, a significant number of people in the UK make New Year's resolutions and one of the most common is to save money. In previous years, priorities for saving may have been saving for a holiday, saving to buy a house or saving for home improvements, but given what's happened over the past year, it's likely many people's priorities for saving may have changed. 

2020 was a year that we’ll never forget due to the tragic losses suffered as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Even now in 2021, the tragedy is still unfolding and there's uncertainty and fear that this pandemic may not be the last. This has caused a great many of us to consider our financial future and long-term financial security, should the worst happen. 

But when it comes to knowing what to do for the best when considering financial security for your future, many people don't believe they have the option to make an investment for the future.  

Investing for the future

Many people think you need to already have a large amount of money if you wish to start making investments. It is true that if you're new to the stock market, its highly advisable that you instruct an independent financial adviser to ensure the risks are minimised as much as practically possible. However, if your investment amount is less than £150,000, paying for bespoke financial planning services can be costly and returns may be minimal. This means that those who don’t have a substantial sum of money to invest don't believe they have the option to invest and instead turn to savings accounts.

Opening a savings account can be beneficial, as you can open an account for a small sum of money and you can add as much money to it as you want, as often as you want, and this can usually be done through an online banking platform, making it quick and easy. However, interest rates on savings accounts are generally very low, so you’re unlikely to see a return significantly above what you put into it.

What many people would like is to have the positives of opening a savings account with the potential returns of an investment. We at Adroit want you to have this option as we believe everyone should be able to make investments, regardless of their level of wealth. That's why we’ve introduced Adroit Direct.
