Investment tracker: Which popular investment method is winning so far in 2022?
The rise of cheap investing apps has opened up a world of possibilities for people who are looking for different ways to save their money. Traditionally, the most popular method of saving for Brits has been to keep their money in a savings account, but increasing numbers are looking to the higher risk and potentially higher reward options of stocks, funds and trackers and often use stock trading apps to do so.
But what could be the best investment in 2022? For the third year running, we decided to start the year with £1,000* placed in some of the most popular investments from last year and the best savings account available on our site. Follow the live tracker below to see what method is currently winning and to learn more about each option.
