Investment secrets

Recording this on Tax Freedom day which is when we officially start working for ourselves having paid our income tax for the year.

  1. Charges
  2. Adviser involvement
  3. Changing legislation
  4. Limited investment opportunity

We are now in a golden age of investment and personal choice.

Not putting all your eggs in one basket.
