Giulia Furlanello started investing for the first time a year ago, and has been encouraged by the 20%-plus return she has seen on her money. The 37-year-old, who lives with her partner in London, says: “I started investing because I wanted to find ways to make my money work for me, and to help me save more money for a rainy day fund."

As well as providing a short-term savings pot for an emergency, Giulia hopes her investments could help her to retire at an earlier age than she might otherwise be able to. Giulia, who works as a senior sales manager, was prompted to open a stocks and shares Isa after talking to a friend who works in the investment industry: “They gave me an overview of what I could do with my money, and what my options were.”
