Savings and investments… what’s the difference?
The main differences between savings and investments are the element of risk attached; and how quickly the money can be accessed.
• Savings (such as bank or building society savings accounts) are typically safer, but attract lower returns. Money can usually be accessed instantly or at a few weeks’ notice.
• Investments may be linked to stock market (or property market) performance – so they have the potential to give higher returns, but usually there’s a higher risk. Investments tend to be a longer-term decision, and there may be penalties for withdrawing funds early.
