FTSE 100 crash: I’d start buying bargain UK shares in an ISA today to retire early

first_img The recent FTSE 100 crash has caused a wide range of UK shares to trade at bargain valuations. This means any investor who’s seeking to build an early-retirement nest egg over the long run may now have numerous buying opportunities.As such, this could be the right time to open a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA. This could help you invest in a diverse range of businesses ahead of a likely market recovery.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…FTSE 100 buying opportunitiesThe FTSE 100’s track record is filled with periods of high volatility. Investors were very uncertain about how the index would perform. Although buying UK shares during such periods hasn’t always produced quick returns, the index has always recovered from even its very worst bear markets to produce new record highs.Therefore, now could be a good time to start buying a wide range of UK shares. In many cases, they offer wide margins of safety as a result of their challenging outlooks. This may present buying opportunities. Especially among those businesses that have sufficient financial strength to survive a challenging short-term period for the economy. Over time, they could deliver impressive returns as investor sentiment and their operating conditions gradually improve.Planning for an early retirementThe FTSE 100 could provide the most attractive risk/reward investing opportunity for long-term investors at the present time. Other assets, such as cash and bonds, may outperform it in the short run should there be a second market crash. But, over the longer term, their return prospects are relatively unattractive. Low interest rates may also be required for a prolonged period of time. This could also mean that cash and bonds offer negative returns after inflation has been factored in.Similarly, other assets, such as buy-to-let property, may offer lower returns than UK shares. Especially when you factor in their high valuations relative to stocks, as well as unfavourable tax treatment, compared to shares held within a Stocks and Shares ISA. Overall, this may mean investors who are seeking to build a nest egg are better off with a portfolio of stocks than owning several properties.Timing the marketOf course, some investors may wish to wait for a more settled period for the FTSE 100 before buying a diverse range of UK shares. However, it’s exceptionally difficult to time the market on a consistent basis. For example, stock prices may have factored in risks, such as a second wave of coronavirus. Meanwhile, some threats, such as slower economic growth due to the US election result, may not materialise.Therefore, now could be the right time to start buying undervalued UK shares. Their recovery potential within a tax-efficient account, such as an ISA, could help you to retire early.

Toulouse stay top after bonus point win over Connacht

first_imgMonday Jan 16, 2012 Toulouse stay top after bonus point win over Connacht Toulouse played some great rugby as they eased passed Connacht to stay top of Pool Six following their Heineken Cup game at the Stade Ernest Wallon stadium on Saturday. The 24-3 bonus point win leaves them sitting pretty after another impressive display. Connacht started well with three points from flyhalf Niall O’Connor but things soon turned the way of the hosts as flying Timoci Matanavou got on the end of a deft kick ahead from Maxime Medard. Matanavou was in the mood for running, as can be seen in the highlights, but Medard soon crossed himself as he got on the end of a well placed crosskick from Kiwi number ten Luke McAlister. They went into the break with the scores at 10-3 but Toulouse piled on the pressure in the second half and scored when powerful number eight Louis Picamoles took a quick tap to score. Connacht reigned the impressive French outfit in to an extent, but couldn’t prevent them from scoring the bonus point try when Medard once again turned provider and Matanavou flew down the left wing to score their fourth. In the final round of matches Toulouse, who sit comfortably on top with 18 points, will face Gloucester at Kingsholm. Connacht will host Harlequins at home on Friday and despite their loss to the French giants, will no doubt feel buoyed by their spirited effort.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Business School to dedicate Tata Hall

first_imgHarvard Business School (HBS) will soon have a new home for some of its executive education programs.Ratan Tata, former chairman of India’s Tata Group and a 1975 graduate of HBS’s Advanced Management Program for senior executives, will join Dean Nitin Nohria, President Drew Faust, former Dean Jay Light, HBS alumnus and benefactor C.D. “Dick” Spangler, and architect William Rawn at a dedication ceremony on Monday for Tata Hall.Located on the northeast corner of the School’s campus in Allston, Tata Hall will enhance and extend the School’s portfolio of executive education program facilities. The building will house executives who come from around the globe to advance their education and then return to strengthen their organizations, thus furthering the HBS mission to educate involved leaders around the world.“We look forward to welcoming remarkable leaders and contributing to their ability to make a profound difference in the world,” said Nohria.The building is named in honor of Ratan Tata, who served as chairman of Tata Sons Ltd. from 1991 until his retirement at the end of last year. The building was funded through generous gifts from the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Tata Education and Development Trust.“Harvard Business School is the preeminent place to be exposed to the world’s best thinking on management and leadership, and we are pleased that this gift will support the School’s educational mission to mold the next generation of global business leaders,” said Tata.The seven-story, glass-and-stone building was designed by William Rawn Associates and built by Bond Construction. Tata Hall, with its distinctive arc shape, complements the School’s existing executive education facilities, which also include McArthur, Baker, and Mellon halls (residences), McCollum and Hawes halls (classrooms), and Glass Hall (administration).The 161,000-square-foot building will feature two classrooms, 179 bedrooms, and three gathering spaces to enhance community among the nearly 10,000 participants who attend executive education programs each year.“We’ve created a destination for professionals who are shaped by different backgrounds, yet seek an executive education experience unlike any other. That’s why Tata Hall is all about building connection,” said Rawn.last_img read more
