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 Belfast let alone Altram ! 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 County Antrim.

Good luck!
