To save or invest? Is that really the question?
Both saving and investing have their merits. Smart investors consider both.
source: Morningstar (2023), total return, 01/01/2007 to 30/06/2023
● FTSE All Share total return – £2,302.7
● UK Savings 2500¹+ Invt NR – £1,065.5
● UK Retail Price Index – £1,866.9
Both saving and investing aim to grow your money. The crucial difference is that when investing, you need to accept a level of uncertainty about how much you’ll get back.
It can seem like money sat in a savings account never goes down. In reality, the rising prices of everyday goods such as food, fuel, and utility bills (shown in the UK Retail Price Index above) means the spending power of your money becomes smaller over time.
Unlike savings, investing is linked to the performance of individual companies and assets, so the value will fall and rise over time. Historically, investments have performed better over longer periods of time².
One solution is to consider both. Having enough money in savings gives you the reassurance should an emergency crop up. With some savings tucked away, you’re in a good position to start thinking about investing.
¹ The UK Savings index shown is compiled from an aggregate of 19 bank and building society rates, chosen to represent the industry as a whole, for a deposit of £2,500. The accounts in the UK Savings £2,500 Index are all instant access accounts. The Index shows the returns to a saver Net of Tax.
² But remember, just because they’ve over-performed savings in the past, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll continue to do so in the future.

The &me Classic portfolios are a lower-cost way to invest with &me. Our passive portfolios invest in equities and bonds across different regions such as US equities and UK corporate bonds and also hold some cash. Investment experts from M&G Wealth decide which investments to use and how much to invest in each asset class on your behalf, based on a range of factors including the potential to generate long-term returns for investors.
Below are the rest of the fees for our Classic portfolios. We invest your money in many different funds. These funds charge fees. We try to keep these fees as low as we can on your behalf. The cost of buying an asset is usually more than the price you can sell it for. The difference in these two prices is called the market spread. We include this information here to give you a clear idea of the total fees you pay when you invest. There is no market spread fee on the Targeted portfolio range.

You can invest up to £20,000 in our Stocks and Shares ISA during the tax year, which runs from April 6 to April 5 each year.
We ask that you start with a minimum of £500 and a maximum of £20,000. You can add amounts of £200 or more to any further contributions as long as you don’t add more than £20,000 in total during the same tax year.
Yes, the minimum initial investment required is £500.
Yes. You can choose from:
– The &me Stocks and Shares ISA: If you’re over 18 and want to enjoy the feeling of tax-free growth on your investments.
– or the &me Junior ISA: Contribute up to £9,000 per year on behalf of your child or grandchild to give them a financial head start.
We don’t offer cash ISAs, Lifetime ISAs, or innovative finance ISAs but you can transfer any you already have into your &me Stocks and Shares ISA.
Opening an ISA with &me is quick and simple. Download the &me app, allow us to guide you through each step of the process.

Absolutely. It’s your money after all.
If you do decide to withdraw your money, it’s important to consider your tax-free benefits. The government lets you add up to £20,000 to your ISA each tax year, regardless of any withdrawals you make. So if you were to add £18,000 to your &me ISA at the start of a tax year and then take out £8,000, you’ll still only be able to add £2,000 more throughout the rest of the year.
No. The best thing about transferring your ISA to &me is that you’ll still be able to make use of any remaining tax-free allowance you have.
Yes you can. When you open your account in the &me app, you’ll be given the option to open a new Stocks and Shares ISA or transfer from a cash or stocks and shares ISA you already have.
Absolutely. You can transfer any number of ISAs to your &me account. When you set up an account in the &me app, we’ll show you how simple it is to do this.
