Investing for beginners


This is a serious video about investing in the stock market. Crucially you will end up with realistic expectations.

My father was a stockbroker. The only thing that every annoyed him were banks. Currently their 'interest rates don't even cover inflation! Personally I have got very keen on 'tracker funds' which simply track the stock market and are very cheap and usually perform as well or better than investment managers or stockbrokers - who are seldom cheap! You will often end up with a London or large city based firm rather than one around Chivenor let alone RMB Chivenor ! However this does not matter. I have seldom met my stockbrokers. This said have a look below for financial advisers and stockbrokers that we have found with Devon.

Good luck!

Philip J Milton & Co Plc

We started to use PJ Miltons services when our good friend passed away and we needed to set up a trust. They have helped us every step of the way, explaining things to us clearly. Everyone we have dealt with in the company has treated us with the greatest of courtesy and respect. Can not recommend them highly enough. Thanks to all for making our lives easier.

My wife and I have always been good savers, but about 13 yrs ago needed to get professional advice as we realised that our savings could do better invested in equities. I had been reading a column in our local paper by Philip J Milton and was quite impressed, so we made an appointment and had the fsa regulated assessment. We have relied on PJ Milton to manage our pension savings as well as our discretionary equity ISAs for the last 13 yrs. I can honestly say that we have been more than pleased with the friendly and courteous way P J Milton handle our affairs. In spite of the downturn during the financial crisis of 2008 we took their advice to sit tight and don't panic! Today my wife and I are very pleased with how our investments are performing under P J Milton's excellent management, and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
