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 Edgbaston let alone UniversityBirmingham ! 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 West Midlands.

Good luck!

I engaged S. J. Financial Solutions to find me a good deal for a re-mortgage and I was very impressed with what they found for me. Stuart and his team always kept me informed, responded to queries quickly, and provided first class guidance and assistance. I really cannot fault they professionalism and diligence, along with the speed of the process. Thank you for a wholly seamless and painless transition from my old lender to my new one and with an excellently competitive rate. I am delighted.

The BEST Mortgage Brokers out there BY FAR! They are very reliable and highly efficient. One thing I would say about SJ Financial is that they always have the clients best interests at heart, and they will always find you the best product on the market to suit your needs. With their help ( especially Deb Wale!) we have been able to secure more time sensitive property deals allowing us to expand our buy-to-let portfolio which otherwise would have been next to impossible. Many thanks to the whole team at S J Financial

The Ikos team always offer a professional service and keep me informed and updated on any changes and issues with my properties. They always manage to find excellent tenants due to their rigorous vetting procedures, I would highly recommend Ikos to other landlords looking to take away the headache and stress of letting their properties

I just want to say Ikos have been magnificent regarding major maintenance issue i had with one of my properties which involved coordinating various tradesmen to rectify all the issues to help get the property back on the market as quick as possible. Ikos took away all the stress and frustrations that could have appeared had it not been for the excellent can do attitude of the Ikos team and their methodical approach. I hope to continue this great partnership with Ikos and recommend other landlords to use Ikos for all their letting needs.
