CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU LOOKING AT DIFFERENT WAYS TO SAVE MONEY?

CHARLOTTE PEMBER | STANFORD RESOURCING

“Yes, I invest in shares instead of with high street banks. With the rates you get with the banks there is hardly any return on the money you’re looking at. There are other ways to get a better return, such as with a fund manager.”

BARRY LUBBERDINK | WILDNET

“Yes. I have looked at ISAs, they offer a better rate of return. I wouldn’t use a bond, I prefer lower risk investments. Rates need to go up to help savers.”

DAN TURNER | LLOYD’S OF LONDON

“Yes. People have diversified, perhaps played the bond markets. A bond linked to inflation sounds like a good thing, I can’t see inflation going down any time soon. People should save more. My generation don’t realise that when they finish work the state pension won’t be enough.”
