Afternoon chaps.

I've recently inherited a sum of money. Nothing huge, but not insignificant either. Instead of blowing it on a year's supply of fags and Jack Daniels as I would've in my younger years, I'm hoping to invest it wisely, and hopefully grow it a bit.

I don't come from a well off background so all of this is pretty unknown to me. I cant tell the difference between stock trading and betting on the horses in practical terms. However, it doesn't take a genius to spot that when the government privatises state assets, it nearly always sells them off considerably undervalued. Therefore, it should be a pretty safe bet if I want to grow my cash by a decent margin in the short to medium term, to invest a few grand in the next big sell-off. Am I correct?

Give it to me straight lads.

It all depends on how much you're willing to invest, how long you're planning to invest for, how much risk you're willing to take and how you'd feel if you lost some/most/all of it.

I it's below the threshold for what you can shove in an ISA, then put it in one of those ones where you can't access the money for X amount of years.

My friend got 12 grand insurance money a few years ago which she put in one and got a decent return on it and wasn't tempted to spend it. because accessing the money is a chore until the time ends.
