Investing can be just as rewarding, if not more so, than your typical run-of-the-mill savings plan. For saving in general, it’s usually advised to put aside between 10 to 15% of your monthly income. Should you bring in £2,000 each month, it’s a good idea to at least save £200 of that paycheque.

Dividend investing is a particular stock trading strategy, which essentially focuses on investing in companies and make your money work for you. Instead of attempting to time the market and make a quick buck in the short term, dividend investing is all about the long game. This strategy requires you to pick and choose stocks that pay out cash to shareholders on a regular basis for reinvestment.
