Types of Investment

Although often referred to as 'Stocks and Shares', a sensibly diversified portfolio should contain a number of different types of investment or asset classes.

Investment Types

These types of investment are broken down into six broad groups:

  • UK Equities
  • Overseas Equities
  • Fixed Interest (Bonds and gilts)
  • Hedge Funds
  • Property
  • Cash

  • Investments and income arising from them can fall in value and you may lose some or all of the amount you have invested.
  • The services and investments referred to in this website may not be suitable for all private investors; before taking any action based upon this website you should consult ourselves or an independent adviser.
  • If you require more guidance with investment decisions or wish to place the management of your portfolio in expert hands, please contact your local branch or call 0113 200 6560 and we will discuss with you the suitability of our services and products.
