Pensions V Other Investments

Buy-to-Let Investments have been popular in the UK for some years now. Articles like this one http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20726001 may persuade some people to invest in residential property rather than a pension scheme even a cost effective Group Personal Pension which is offered by an employer. Buy-to-Let investing can be very profitable for people who know what they are doing and do not make errors. You are placing your eggs in one or a limited number of baskets. It is important you know the risks and you can afford for those risks to go against you. I have read stories of investors in new build flats in Manchester losing vast sums of money because they did not know what they were doing and the local market was not as good as London or they hoped it would be. If you are planning on making some large investments make sure you take professional advice and properly evaluate all of the options. Wexdon Financial Services is not merely IFAs in London.
