Investing for beginners

This is a serious video about investing in the stock market. Crucially you will end up with realistic expectations.

My father was a stockbroker. The only thing that every annoyed him were banks. Currently their 'interest rates don't even cover inflation! Personally I have got very keen on 'tracker funds' which simply track the stock market and are very cheap and usually perform as well or better than investment managers or stockbrokers - who are seldom cheap! You will often end up with a London or large city based firm rather than one around Glasgow let alone Knightswood Secondary School ! However this does not matter. I have seldom met my stockbrokers. This said have a look below for financial advisers and stockbrokers that we have found with Lanarkshire.

Good luck! 

Independent Financial Advisors IFAs

Farrell Financial Planning Ltd

19 Danes Dr, Glasgow G14 9HZ, UK – 0141 570 0302

I went to FFP for guidance with what to do with a pension that I had maturing, Joe looked into it, gave me great advice, after a meeting and several phone calls and him emailing to my pension provider Prudential. He didn't try to sell me anything, where as the Prudential advisor tried to sell me on something else. Joe even got me a £100 check from them for wrongful advice and withholding information. Amazing work Joe, thanks again. Namaste

I was really impressed by Joe's depth of knowledge of the world of finance and he continually provides me with great advice that maximises the return on my investment. He is extremely personable and manages to explain complicated processes in an extremely easy to understand manner. I would have no problem in recommending Joe at Farrell Financial Planning to anyone looking for good, sound and honest financial advice.

Maria has been my Financial Advisor for over 25 years. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional but is also pragmatic and realistic. I have recommended her to friends and family and they have also been delighted with the service that they’ve received. Maria will always go the extra mile the level of service that she and her team give is exemplary. I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Louise Laidlaw

I got to know about Prosperity a few years ago when Maria Saunders came to my workplace to give advice regarding my works pension...felt so confident with the advice given I asked her to my home to look over my husband's pension. We have never looked back the advice and support Maria and her colleagues give us means we have peace of mind in knowing we have a portfolio which will help us in the future when retirement comes around.

Independent Mortgage Store

93 Byres Rd, Glasgow G11 5HW, UK – 0141 337 3393

Gerry provided a phenomenal service. He was incredibly helpful at every step of the process and when we were having problems with the lender late on that almost delayed the purchase Gerry stepped in and spoke to the lender to sort everything out. I would highly recommend and will certainly be going back here when it is time to remortgage.

I have used The Independent Mortgage Store for 20 years and recommended to many friends over the years! Paul's depth of knowledge is exceptional and his friendly nature always makes things easier. Laura is a credit to the company and again, very pleasant to deal with. I would never go anywhere else.
