Tracey steps back in time

I have recently returned from one of my favourite events of the year, the Goodwood Revival, which combines my passion for motor racing and wearing outfits from the 1940's - 50's. The Goodwood Revival is a three-day festival that has been held each September since 1998 at the Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit in West Sussex for the types of road racing cars and motorcycles that would have competed during the circuit's heyday of 1948-1966.  It claims to be the worlds most celebrated historic motor event, which I don't doubt, with people attending from all over the world, many of whom dress in clothes from the era. I have attended every year since 1999 and have seen the event grow beyond recognition.  Many former motor racing drivers regularly take part, which in the past have included Damon Hill, Martin Brundle & Sir Stirling Moss as well as celebrities such as Rowan Atkinson and Chris Rea, and more recently Sir Chris Hoy the multi world and Olympic champion cyclist.

Platforms & Term Deposits

A platform is an online service that allows us as financial advisers to manage your portfolio through investment, administration and analysis. Assets which can be 'stored' on a platform include shares, bonds, cash, investment trusts, unit trusts and pensions as well as tax-wrapped investments such as ISAs, Child Trust Funds and self-invested personal pensions. A platform is not an investment in itself, but a facility where an individual can store all their investments/savings. In our experience, we find most investors have difficulties in getting an overall view of all of their plans and investments. A platform assists us and the client in overcoming this problem of visualisation. Therefore the benefit for investors of consolidating all their investments/savings on one platform can be that there is one point of reference and a simplified reporting process.
