DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rrl9c9/savings_and) has announced the addition of the "Savings and Investments Market Report 2015" report to their offering.
This market report covers the retail savings and investments market (that is, focusing on products sold to and held by consumers). Although it touches on the financial advice provided to consumers at the point of sale, this does not fall within this report's remit: instead, this is covered in Independent Financial Advisors. Whereas previous editions of this report examined pension products as investments, the wide scope and scale of the pensions market is better addressed in its own standalone report, entitled Pensions.
This report is split into seven sectors: banks; mutual organisations; National Savings & Investments (NS&I); individual savings accounts; unit trusts and investment trusts; stocks and shares; and other savings and investments. It examines household holdings of various savings and investment products and the variations in their value over the past 5 years, as well as the upcoming trends likely for the coming 5 years to 2019.
The changing trends in the various sections of this market are discussed alongside the value of holdings by households, while the report also examines consumers' thoughts and feelings with regard to the savings and investments market. Consumer penetration for many types of products is also analysed.
Although the market is divided into the below sectors, it is more broadly divided into liquid and more illiquid products. Liquid savings include funds held in savings accounts at banks, building societies and credit unions, etc., and are easily convertible back into cash. Many NS&I products would also fall into this category. Investments harder to liquidate include many investment bonds and funds, which may come with redemption charges, as well as property and with-profits life protection products.
