Savings & Investments

When someone talks about savings and saving money, they could be referring to a piggy bank on the mantelpiece or a high interest deposit account. Savings are effectively cash or cash instruments, for example, deposit accounts or term bonds.

Investing is what you can do with the savings you have created - if you are looking to generate a return on your money that is greater than what is already available to you through your savings instruments.
