What is the investment industry?
Investment is a profession that provides a vital social function for the economy.
The investment profession manages the pool of money that comes from our savings, from the money that builds up in our pension funds, the money that provides an income in retirement, that charities needs to support their activities, that insurance companies need to invest until it is paid out.
Investing £5.7 trillion, with 90,000 jobs it’s an activity that touches us all – more than half the population has pension savings, more than three-quarters have insurance products.
It’s a rewarding profession where you can help a client have the retirement they want or educate their children; see the companies you invested in succeed; and make a difference to the environment by showing companies we care about their carbon footprint.
