Invest for Life: how and where to invest

Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can fall as well as rise, so you may get back less than you invest.

Meet the investors

Invest for Life is a series of videos showing how different people are tackling the financial challenges they face on the way to reaching their goals and living the lives they want. All the investors you’ll meet are real people who tell us, in their own words, about their financial experiences - good and bad. Some are already investors with Fidelity, others are just starting out.

In this episode they discuss how life is full of choices - some of them easy and some more difficult. But fortunately, when it comes to investing, you don’t have to make all the decisions on your own. While some investors are happy to explore all of the options themselves, others prefer to find a fund that picks their investments for them. Either way, the important thing is to find a way of investing that feels comfortable for you.

Watch the investors talk about the ways they decide how and where their money is invested.
