How investing £300 a month in the FTSE 100 could help you retire a millionaire!

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images. Enter Your Email Address Many of my friends ask me if it’s possible that they could retire as millionaires. My simple answer is, yes. Even on a minimal income level, I believe people can become millionaires by retirement age if they start early enough. “How is that possible?” they understandably ask. I reply that it’s through investing regularly and the magic of compounding returns. Let’s take a closer look.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Compounding returnsLet’s assume that you’re 25 years old with only £100 in savings and that you plan to retire at age 65. You invest that £100 and earn an 8% annual return. Then you make an additional £3,600 of contributions annually at the start of each year.You have 40 years to invest. The annual return is 8%, compounded once a year. At the end of 40 years, the total amount saved becomes £1,009,384!Saving £3,600 a year would mean being able to put aside about £300 a month or about £10 a day. Might you just be wondering if you should skip that next impulse purchase?Investing later in life?On the other hand, if you wait to start investing until you’re 30, you will have ‘only’ £671,446. The difference is due to the power of compound interest. This has a snowball effect on personal savings. As time goes on, interest leads to more money, over and over again. In other words, if you start saving later in life, you have to save more each year in order to make up the difference. For example, if you start investing at age 40, then you would need to save and invest slightly over £1,000 a month to reach a million in your retirement account by age 65.Ensuring a financially secure retirementThe full basic state pension is currently £168.60 per week. Do you truly believe you can live on that amount for the rest of your life after retirement? It’s important to have a realistic view of how you can pay for a retirement of several decades. For example, I’d encourage you to contribute to your workplace pension scheme if you have one.Every UK resident should also learn more about the different types of ISAs available to them, with an emphasis on Stocks and Shares ISAs. My Motley Fool colleagues regularly cover FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares, as well as funds to consider adding to a diversified retirement portfolio. They point out that the stock market returns about 7% to 9% annually on average. FTSE investment optionsThe FTSE 100 seems to be the initial index Britons mostly consider when they first start investing. It’s composed of the 100 largest companies, by market capitalisation, on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The FTSE 250 is the next 250 largest companies and also has a number of investment trusts. As you start learning more about the investment choices available, you’re likely to feel that some companies may be more appropriate for novice investors.You may, for example, want to initially stay with large-cap shares as well as those with high (but reliable) dividend yields. Any capital gains delivered by the stock would be an added bonus on top of the dividend.Another option could be to invest in low-cost exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which track popular stock indices both in the UK and globally. For example, if you’re interested in dividend stocks, then the iShares UK Dividend UCITS ETF may be an ETF to consider.

New charitable wedding list service raises funds from guests

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Alternative Wedding List is an online wedding list service, where instead of toasters and kettles, couples sign-up to a list that contains gifts of donations to various charities.This new service allows those engaged couples that already have everything in their homes they could possibly want to use their big day for the benefit of others.The service works the same as any other online wedding list. First, couples register online and send their guests details of where their list is held. Then guests logon to the couple’s list, select a gift from the those available, pay via a secure payment link and receive a receipt for their purchase. Couples can logon to their list at any time to view purchases and messages from guests, and then receive a final certificate confirming how much their guests donated to each charity.

Each gift purchased represents a donation to the charity whose gift a guest has selected. For example, £27 pays for a gift to Sight Savers International to allow them to pay for a cataract operation for a child in Bangladesh, while £50 would buy a gift to Save the Children to allow them to buy a set of winter clothes for a child in Serbia.Andy Hickey, founder of The Alternative Wedding List, said: “we think there’s a gap in the market for couples who don’t need more toasters and who would like to feel good about the gifts that their guests buy. We claim back Gift Aid from the Inland Revenue on behalf of the charities. We use some of this to run the service and forward the rest on to the charities along with 100% of the original donation.”Launched at last week’s Charityfair in London, The Alternative Wedding List says that charities already signed-up to the service include Help the Aged, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Save the Children and Sight Savers International.The Alternative Wedding List Limited has been set-up as a non-profit making company.  17 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

7 dead as truck plows into motorcycles in New Hampshire

first_imgiStock(RANDOLPH, N.H.) — A pickup truck plowed into a group of motorcycles, killing seven people and injuring three more, in a horrific accident in northern New Hampshire on Friday.The accident took place in Randolph, New Hampshire, a few miles from Mount Washington, at about 6:30 p.m. when a Ford 2500 slammed into multiple motorcycles on Route 2, according to state police.It is unclear how many of the deaths were motorcycle riders as opposed to those in the truck.Two people injured in the accident were taken to Androscoggin Valley Hospital, while another was airlifted to Maine Medical Center in Portland.“It’s tragic. It’s tragic for those involved, tragic for the families, so we’re doing our job, we’re doing our work and our thoughts are with the people who were adversely affected by this,” New Hampshire State Police Capt. Chris Vetter said.Route 2 remained closed to all traffic in the area four hours after the crash, and state police said it would remain closed through the night.“The identities of the deceased are still being confirmed and that information will not be released until next of kin have been notified,” state police said in a press release.Photos from the scene of the accident showed a handful of smashed motorcycles strewn across the road and the pickup truck on fire.“I held his hand, and I tried to get him to — I’m like, ‘Squeeze my hand. Stay with me. You’re a strong guy. You’ve got this.’ Toward the end, when the ambulance got there, I could feel him losing strength,” eyewitness Travis Hood told Manchester, New Hampshire, ABC affiliate WMUR-TV.There had been 27 previous deaths on New Hampshire roads in 2019, according to state police.This is the second fatal accident in Randolph this year after someone died in a crash on Feb. 4.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The accuracy of climate variability and trends across Arctic Fennoscandia in four reanalyses

first_imgArctic Fennoscandia has undergone significant climate change over recent decades. Reanalysis data sets allow us to understand the atmospheric processes driving such changes. Here we evaluate four reanalyses against observations of near‐surface air temperature (SAT) and precipitation (PPN) from 35 meteorological stations across the region for the 35‐year period from 1979 to 2013. The reanalyses compared are the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR), the European Centre for Medium‐Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF) Interim reanalysis (ERA‐Interim), the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) 55‐year reanalysis (JRA‐55) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Modern‐Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA). All four reanalyses have an overall small cool bias across Arctic Fennoscandia, with MERRA typically ~1 °C cooler than the others. They generally reproduce the broad spatial patterns of mean SAT across the region, although less well in areas of complex orography. Observations reveal a statistically significant warming across Arctic Fennoscandia, with the majority of trends significant at p < .01. Three reanalyses show similar regional warming but of smaller magnitude while CFSR is anomalous, even having a slight cooling in some areas. In general, the other reanalyses are sufficiently accurate to reproduce the varying significance of observed seasonal trends. There are much greater differences between the reanalyses when comparing PPN to observations. MERRA‐Land, which merges a gauge‐based data set, is clearly the best: CFSR is the least successful, with a significant wet bias. The smoothed reanalysis orography means that the high PPN associated with the western side of the Scandinavian Mountains extends too far inland. Spatial patterns of PPN trends across the region differ markedly between the reanalyses, which have varying success at matching observations and generally fail to replicate sites with significant observed trends. Therefore, using reanalyses to analyse PPN changes in Arctic Fennoscandia should be undertaken with caution.last_img read more
