    What to do with 20k ? 8th Aug 18 at 11:42 AM

    I have 20k in a Barclays ISA but the interest rate is pretty pathetic.

    Is there a better way I can be saving/investing this?

    it depends on your goals. If you are 25 and the money is not needed then inversting rather than saving would be the way forward, whereas if you are 2 years from retirement then the choices might be different.

    you will need to supply a lot more info if you want any useful responses

    You've asked the same question over the years with many helpful replies. Can you tell us what you don't like about them rather than people repeating the same suggestions again?
