Investing for the future should only be done with spare income or spare capital that you have accrued or inherited. I would always advise you are on the property ladder first, and you have a cash amount equal to 6-12 months salary or $50,000 to be used in emergencies before you consider investment.
Investments usually provide income or growth. However they can also be used for tax planning and as security to raise more capital.
I can offer you options which will cover most aspects of investment for both personal and corporate clients.
