WHAT’S THE BEST LONG TERM INVESTMENT – A PROPERTY OR THE STOCK MARKET?

PROPERTY OR THE STOCK MARKET?

With the UK population living longer than ever, it’s arguably never been more vital to pick the ‘best’ way to save for the future.

Should I invest in a property or shares? It’s the age-old debate. In this factsheet, which is not financial advice, we identify the key factors to consider including:

  • Capital growth: does history show property is better than the stock market?
  • Buy-to-let investing: the factors you should consider before investing in this area
  • Rental income or dividends: which is better?
