Research shows that UK households are poor at investment management with a limited understanding of investment choices, risks and returns. On this free online course, you’ll learn about different investment choices, the returns and risks associated with each, and the evidence about their historical performance. Throughout, the course will provide recent and current case studies on investment issues, to demonstrate how the ideas and issues explored in the course are reflected in the arena of personal investments. This course is presented on FutureLearn with the kind support of True Potential LLP. The True Potential Centre for the Public Understanding of Finance (True Potential PUFin) is a pioneering Centre of Excellence for research in the development of personal financial capabilities, based at The Open University Business School.
