The importance of saving

Posted by Adrian Lowcock in Latest insights category on 25 Jun 20

Here are a few reasons why we save:

  • Rainy Day - Life is full of surprises, and cash savings give you the flexibility to deal with them, whether that is replacing the leaky boiler, paying the bill for fixing your car or coping with a sudden loss of income. You will need some money set aside for these emergencies to avoid going into debt to pay for your necessities
  • Retirement - If you are in or close to retirement, you will probably need a mix of savings and investments to take the place of the income you will no longer get from your job
  • Wedding - To pay for a wedding these days you are going to need to save money and with the costs rising significantly in recent years it could take a few years to build up your savings pot to pay for it
  • Deposit for a house - To get on the housing ladder today is difficult. House prices have rocketed over the past 20 years and so has the size of the deposit required.
Without money put away in savings and investments, you open yourself up to other risks as well and it may force you into taking a loan that your savings might otherwise have covered.
