Jacket Text

Investing can be one of the most reliable passports to a better life. But where should you invest your money?

Mark Dampier has been helping thousands of investors answer this question for over 30 years. In his first ever book he brings together everything he has learnt from grilling fund managers, weighing up investments and prospering through dramatic ups and downs.

The result is THE must-read insider's guide for how to succeed as a DIY private investor.

As Mark explains, effective investing doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming. Armed with this book, you can find easy ways to make your money work for you, no matter how much or how little you start out with.

Writing in plain English and using real-life examples throughout, Mark reveals:

- the secrets of picking the best investment funds
- how he invests his own savings and pension fund
- starter portfolios for first-time investors
- the most common traps that investors fall into
- the trouble with buy-to-let and other popular solutions.

With today's powerful online platforms and generous tax incentives (also outlined in the book), the markets have never been more accessible. But success without a plan is far from guaranteed. Effective Investing is the guide you've been waiting for to make sure you get what you want from your investing.
