Do yourself a big favour, do not try and invest money yourself take advice from an Independent Financial adviser - preferably one that works on fees.

By doing it yourself, you do not save on the charges or commissions, as the standard charges on most investment contracts have commission already in built in. Therefore you still pay the commissions but these are not disclosed to you - more importantly you are resposible for your investment decisions. Take advice fom a professional that do this every day of their working lives.

Finally as far as I am aware Martyn Lewis is not qualified to give financial advice and it is a disgrace that he is allowed to get away with this on the assumption he is a "financial guru" . If he is that good why doesn't he sit the demanding exams required to become a fully qualified financial advisor and then try and get authorised with the FSA. He will soon realise have difficult this is.

If he wasn't proficient he wouldn't be a regular guest on national TV and radio programmes each week.

Sour grapes ???
I find Martin Lewis's advice first class and totally unbiased. Many of the so called financial advisors are only there to exploit the mass market. At least with Martin's advice, you are free to make up your own mind and no commision is paid out to anyone on his site.
