If you could achieve your financial goals by simply leaving your money in the bank, you wouldn’t need a financial plan. However, life is a little more complex. We all need to make sensible decisions to achieve our life goals whether this is buying a new home, saving for a child’s future or a comfortable retirement. Our financial planning articles look at the intricacies of investment, taxation and pensions and how these impact your financial goals.

For funds that invest overseas, changes in currency exchange rates may affect the value of your investment. Investments in small and emerging markets can be more volatile than those in other overseas markets. Fidelity only gives information about products and services and does not provide investment advice based on individual circumstances.
