Searching for a good return on your investment

Not our usual topic – we normally blog about tea – but today we wanted to raise the issue of high investment returns.

Mike Hughes of Castle Trust has written an intelligent post at the link above about promises of riches from investments that promise to return 10% or more annually.

It’s of personal interest to us because, as a small business, we are often emailed marketing materials by companies urging us to save or invest with them.

Beware, says Mike!

“In most cases, the higher the return on any investment opportunity, the higher the risk. This is simple economics,” Mike says.

Well, quite. Well worth a read. We’ll be back to talking about tea next week!
