An investment is any type of financial savings plan or Bond that maybe linked to the Stocks and Shares market, most people invest money to make financial gains, whilst some invest money to save a capital amount for the future.

Unlike standard workplace/occupational pension schemes, an FSAVC is investment based and grows depending on the stock market, which in some cases can prove risky for you.

Whilst some people who invest do understand the risks involved and that they could lose a proportion of their investment, others have been mis-advised to invest huge sums of money without any previous experience or knowledge.

Some of the largest well known banks have been fined millions of pounds for providing bad advice, many did not even check whether their customers could afford to invest money. Independent research carried out by Which? (source) found that only five out of 37 advisers in banks and building societies gave what it termed "good advice", while the majority of advisers showed a poor understanding of the risks and made misleading statements.
