Risk and Reward

An effective investment strategy is built on your own personal approach to risk and reward.

How much are you willing to risk? What does high risk and low risk mean to you? What is your capacity to absorb losses?

These are just a few of the questions you need to ask yourself before creating an investment plan, as the answers will inform the amount of money you invest and where you invest that money.

Although there is no hard and fast rule, in general high-risk investments come with greater potential returns and a higher chance of losses compared to low risk investments.

The length of your investments is also very important. In general, a longer investment strategy will come with a lower overall risk. Most financial advisers Newcastle will recommend a minimum 5-year investment term for the best results.

Types of investments

Government Gilts and Corporate Bonds

Government Gilts and corporate bonds are issued by the government and multinational corporations respectively as a means of borrowing funds.

Both of these investment types are relatively low risk, though generally require a fund manager to be invested into.

Here at Seven Bridges, our team of financial advisers Newcastle have the resources and expertise to make these options available to you as an individual investor.


ISA stands for Individual Savings Accounts and offer a £20,000 allowance in the 2020/21 tax year. You can invest in either cash or stocks and shares, or a combination of the two.

ISAs have the benefit of being tax efficient so can be a valuable asset in your overall strategy.

OEICs and Unit Trusts

OEICs and Unit Trusts are an effective tool for diversifying your investments. They allow for you to collectively invest with other individual investors and therefore spread risk and keep costs under control.

Therefore, if you are interested in this investment avenue, we recommend seeking the help of financial advisers Newcastle.
