Understanding investing

If you’re new to Investing it can seem a complex and potentially off putting subject.

This video series is designed to give you an easy to digest introduction to what’s involved if you’re thinking about managing your own investments.

They’re not designed to cover all the detail, or recommend that you make an investment.
