Ron Patel, 29, describes himself as a “high risk” investor – who’s not afraid to invest in more volatile sectors .

He says: “These are longer term savings, that will in the main be for my retirement. I can afford to take a longer-term view and take a few risks along the way.”

Patel – who lives in West London -  said he started investing three years ago, initially on the advice of his father, whom he describes as an “avid investor”.  At the time Patel says he was working for Transport for London, and had just bought his first home. “I started saving monthly to help build up some savings for retirement.”
