Four easy ways to end 2017 on a high note

Every January many people make resolutions to sort out their finances by the end of the year – and promptly forget to do anything about it. If this sounds like you, don’t worry. Here we bring you four easy ways to get on top of your finances before the year is out. And with Christmas just around the corner, we know there are better things to be doing – so each of these will take no more than 10 minutes. What could you do to end 2017 on a high note?

Start investing regularly

A common resolution is to start investing more often – but most people don’t have the time or simply forget. An alternative is to set up regular savings. These are monthly cash deposits or investments into funds that come out of your bank account automatically. Open an account or log in to get started with regular savings today.

Bring your investments together

When you transfer investments to Bestinvest we do all the leg work for you – from contacting your providers to moving your investments across. Simply fill in a short form and we will be in touch.
