Welcome To How to Invest Successfully in the UK
Is it as complicated as it seems?
This is not a 'Get-Rich-Quick' website, nor does it promised you a formula for guaranteed returns. It does, however, answer the above three questions in full - and the full answers, we believe, are worth reading - the short answers, which all happen to be the same (namely: the answer to each question is 'Both Yes and No'), we believe are NOT worth reading.
How to invest successfully
In spite of the tax on capital gains and increased tax on dividends, I ordinary stocks and shares still offer the most attractive opportunities for investors, provided that the investor is equipped with the knowledge and skill necessary for success in buying and selling on the stock market.
As all profits and capital gains are subject to increased taxes, the incidence of the new taxation on stocks and shares is no heavier than that elsewhere, so that no better or more lucrative alternative presents itself for the employment of the surplus capital of the knowledgeable investor.

Nevertheless, the decisions about buying and selling on the stock exchange should be yours and not the brokers'. -
