Buy an ISA you buy a defined return.
Buy shares/commodities you buy a bet that they will be worth more in time.
Buy property/land it always increases in value over time...difficult to build more land in Britain.
I don't know how much you have to invest but any crappy plots of land in your area, going cheap without planning permission to build?
Wait long enough and permission will be granted, increasing value by tens of thousands even for a single dwelling.
If I'd listened to my mates and got into a #ty agricultural land deal on the edge of town twenty years ago I'd be a millionaire now.
They are millionaires and I am not, we are still close friends though.
...but the banter about the jewels slipping through my fingers in the 90's can be brutal after a few drinks lol
