Having money in the bank is good, but could you be managing it better? The UK cash market is reportedly worth £2.3 trillion. Two-thirds of that is held by five banks, with the majority earning less than 0.5% interest.
Do I need cash management?
It’s worth thinking about how you manage your cash if you are:
- Fed up with low interest rates from your bank
- Worried about having too much cash in one bank, which could limit the compensation you receive under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
- A finance director under pressure from the board to make your company cash work harder
- Retiring and want a safe home for your money for a while
- A business owner who is planning to sell
- Wanting to protect money for a tax bill in 6, 12 or 18 months’ time
- A property developer with staging money you need to protect
- Looking to put savings aside to help with school fees for children or grandchildren
Whichever of these applies to you, it’s likely you’ve been put off actively managing your cash by the hassle of checking rates and opening new bank accounts.
The good news: with the right advisers, and the right technology, you can increase your interest, reduce your risk and manage your money better than ever before.
