Like many of us, you may be increasingly aware of the punitive effects of inflation on your savings. Maximising your purchasing power in tricky economic conditions is not easy, but Doceo may just help give you the edge.
The rise of large retail trading platforms has, to an extent, democratised share ownership. In fact, according to the Investment Association, UK retail savers have invested over £186bn in the last 10 years.
During that time, investors have experienced the ups and downs which come with the territory of financial markets exposure. Most recently, belligerent inflation and rising interest rates amidst geopolitical uncertainty have all caused investors to take stock and consider their next move.
A passing glance at Twitter or Reddit will show that investment opinions are plentiful and varied. In some cases, they are less than reputable. While more authoritative sources are available, they are often harder to come by, and truly independent research can be costly.
But at the same time, poring through fund websites and documentation to make up your own mind may not be the best option for those of us juggling the pressures of everyday life. Doceo provides an alternative outlet, housing all the relevant information in a concise and digestible format. The free investment information platform also allows you to hear from the fund managers themselves through bitesize video interviews.
The Doceo online platform is supported by a newly launched state-of-the-art app offering registered users access to high-quality curated video insights directly from investment professionals. These interviews are designed to give you all the information you need to make your own investment decisions, understand what’s under the bonnet of your portfolio, and gain inspiration for your next investment theme. Users can also take advantage of Doceo’s stellar advanced search and filtering tools to cut through the noise in the funds universe.
The platform specialises in investment companies. Like other fund types, investment companies, also known as investment trusts, give you exposure to a much larger portfolio of assets. Unlike other fund types, they are ‘closed ended’ in structure; they have a fixed number of shares in issue at any one time. One of the advantages to these long-established structures is that investors can gain exposure to alternative asset classes such as private markets, property, and infrastructure projects – areas of the market which are not always readily accessible for everyday investors.
Whether you are an experienced investor, or you are just dipping your toe into the stock market, Doceo offers you a wealth of information to improve your decision making and keep you in the loop with markets.
The value of investments and the income therefrom may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
