    Research & Some Books To Read 5th Dec 17 at 1:04 PM
    In 2018 I'll receive some money and after helping with my daughters house purchase deposit, reducing/removing a loan, a mortgage and buying/building a T6 campervan I'll have about £100,000 left over which I want to invest. I won't really need quick access to the investment as I will have a separate monthly income.

    This forum looks like a good place to start asking for advice, I've also had a look around This Is Money, I am a complete novice with no financial investment background.

    What other places should I look to for advice, which books, magazines, websites are worth a read before I go it alone or put my trust in a financial advisor.

    Thanks

    A couple of sites I visit are Monevator http://monevator.com/category/investing/passive-investing-investing/

    and DIY Investor http://diyinvestoruk.blogspot.co.uk/p/basics.html

    For books, I like 'DIY Simple Investing' by Edwards, 'Smarter Investing' by Hale and Bogle's 'Little Book of Common Sense Investing'
    If you choose index funds you can never outperform the market.
    If you choose managed funds there's a high probability you will underperform index funds.

    Agree with all of the above. Smarter Investing by Tim Hale is a really good book to read before you start investing.
