I have spent a good few days equipping myself with the content on IFG. Notes overload! Over the last decade or so, I have consistently accumulated savings in a basic account but did not do anything more with it. Lack of awareness is the honest answer.
I am now 32 years old and would like to invest approx. $15-17k (less emergency funds) across the various assets:
LISA (for emergency funds?)
And possibly a foreign investment too as I plan to not have it all in GBP.
My long term goals: property purchase, quit 9-5 one day InShaAllah (working on creating alternative income streams).
Would I better be off seeking the services of an IFA to execute the above since I have left this rather late? I basically want to catch up to the point where I should have been if I started on time!
Jazakallah in advance for any advice.
