Downton & Ali video – Investment Explained

We can offer an option for investors wishing to save money on a regular basis. These savings vehicles can build a capital lump sum for a number of reasons, such as children’s school fees, buying a home, saving for a lifetime trip or planning for retirement.

Downton & Ali Associates aim to create a comprehensive investment plan for clients looking to save a regular amount. Our advice is based on client’s needs and objectives, balanced with preference between risks, returns and tax implications on the savings.

Whether you are looking for capital growth or to build an income from your investment, finding the right investment that does not leave you vulnerable to unnecessary tax implications, requires the help of professional investment specialists.

Downton & Ali Associates help clients achieve their investment goals based on their tolerance for investment risk and within the timescales stipulated.

An ISA is a government backed tax efficient savings vehicle, into which you can contribute up to a set limit either as a lump sum or by regular monthly payment every tax year.

Downton and Ali Associates advisers can give you expert advice on the type of ISA most suited to your individual circumstances and show you your options regarding the fund to invest in. There are a number of recommended funds but also access to a large number of self select funds for the more experienced investor.

Most people do not realise that once an ISA has been taken it does not have to be left with the current provider, but can be switched at any time to another provider without affecting the current years allowances. This includes transfers from a cash ISA to an equity ISA.

Many people have numerous old ISA’s, and these are very rarely reviewed and may not be performing as well as expected or may not fit the clients current risk strategy.

Why not let Downton and Ali Associates advisers perform a review of all of your current holdings to see what would be right for you.

We regularly have access to lump sum savings vehicles, which can benefit from the growth in the stock market without the risks associated with it.
