A few days ago it was reported that a single page from a rare Superman comic sold for an incredible $3.36 million (£2.45 million).

“There are many different types of investments that you can make with varying levels of risk, from stocks and shares to investment funds, and investment trusts, the list goes on. If you’ve never invested before, it’s important to do your research and understand how the process works and what you may need to look out for before you invest your money.
“We recommend that your first step should be to check out “best-buy” lists. These are lists that are published by investment platforms to help you narrow down your purchase choice. There is, of course, no guarantee that the funds on these lists will have a better performance than those not featured, but they can help give you investment ideas.”
