Congratulations. You’ve just taken the first step towards securing a better financial future for yourself.

If you find the investment world intimidating, or even overwhelming, then I don’t blame you. Especially given the recent dramas…

The mainstream media do everything they can to make the financial world as opaque as possible. They make you feel the need to palm off responsibility for your financial future to someone… anyone else. Preferably one of their advertisers.

That’s why we launched Fortune & Freedom. Nigel Farage made it his mission to demystify investing. To cut through the noise and the spin. And to give you the confidence to take control of your own finances.

The economic chaos wrought by the pandemic proves that there’s no better time than now.

Here at Southbank Investment Research, our editors are experts in an astounding range of topics: gold, renewable energy, technology and cryptocurrencies, to name just a few.

That’s why I’ve asked some of them to discuss one single stock that they think every investor should have on their radar. These are not intended to be recommendations to buy, but may be a good starting point for your own, deeper investment research. If you’re unsure whether an investment is right for you, seek independent financial advice.

Some of these companies are established, recognisable names in their respective sectors. Others are fast-growing start-ups developing cutting-edge technologies. 

Whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned investor, I hope that this report will inspire and inform your investment strategy. It’s a great place to start.

Of course, the next few pages offer just a glimpse of the excellent work that our editors publish each week, and that demonstrate why Southbank Investment Research is one of the leading authorities on investment in the United Kingdom.

So let’s dive in. To kick us off, my friend Rob Marstrand, who manages UK Independent Wealth alongside Nigel, will share the stock that he believes every investor should be watching closely.

All the best,

Nick Hubble
Editor, Fortune & Freedom
