Invest for Life: risk and reward

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 talk about the link between the markets’ ups and downs and potential risk and rewards. They describe their own individual attitudes to risk and discuss how this can change over time. Above all, they talk about the importance of striking a balance between risk and reward that suits your own personal circumstances and goals.

Watch the investors tell us how they think about potential risks and rewards.
