Why should you fall in love with investing this Valentine’s Day?

Please remember that when investing, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio with Moneyfarm can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. Forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance. The views expressed here should not be taken as a recommendation, advice or forecast. If you are unsure investing is the right choice for you, please seek financial advice.

The people closest to us are the most important relationships we have throughout our lives –  but our relationship with our finances plays a crucial role as well. That’s why this Valentine’s Day, we think you should consider falling in love with investing… maybe for the first time or maybe again. 

While it may not be as delicious as chocolate or as beautiful as a rose, investing can offer some unique rewards and long-term fulfilment. But why should you consider starting a new relationship with investing this Valentine’s Day? Here, we’ll look at a few reasons why.

Developing your emotional intelligence

While investing may seem purely rational, it also evokes a range of emotions similar to those we experience in our personal lives. From the excitement of discovering new opportunities to the patience required during market fluctuations, investing teaches us valuable lessons in resilience, discipline and emotional intelligence.

Achieving mutual goals with a trusted partner

Just as couples set shared goals and aspirations, investing can help you achieve your financial goals, whether it’s buying a home, funding your children’s education or retiring comfortably. By aligning your investments with your long-term objectives, you can work towards realising your dreams as a team.

At Moneyfarm, we aim to be your ‘total wealth partner’ who can help you achieve your financial goals. Our team are on hand to help you make the most of your money and tailor a saving and investment solution that’s unique to your circumstances and objectives. 

Staying committed for the long term

We talk a lot about staying invested with us for the longer term so you can potentially reap the rewards of strong market performance. Just as in life, to be around for the good times, it often means having to endure some harder times every now and then. All the best relationships in life are built to endure the various stresses life can throw at us, and being invested is no different. We believe that having a well-diversified portfolio at the heart of your strategy is a vital way of ensuring you have a good chance to weather the bad times and make the most of the good ones when they come along.

Aiming for financial freedom 

Ultimately, falling in love with investing can potentially lead to financial freedom – the ability to live life on your own terms without being constrained by financial limitations. Whether it’s pursuing your passions, travelling the world, or giving back to your community, investing opens doors to a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

At Moneyfarm, we offer you the opportunity to save and invest in a way that suits you. Whether you’d like us by your side with one of our managed general investment portfolios, or you’d like the flexibility of a share investing account to invest in individual stocks and ETFs, we’re here for you.

Our managed portfolios are specially designed to cater to seven different risk levels to match your unique attitude to risk-reward. While our new share investing style gives you the opportunity to invest in specific stocks, ETFs and mutual funds to broaden your portfolio. All this with competitive pricing on fees and our expert team always by your side to help you make the best possible decisions with your savings.

So this Valentine’s Day, why not consider embracing the love of investing as a meaningful and rewarding new relationship? But remember that it requires commitment, patience and dedication. We believe that with time, effort and a little touch of passion, you can start a lasting and enriching partnership with investing that will last far beyond Valentine’s Day.
