During the past year or two you may have been considering what the best plan for your money is and whether you should be saving or investing to make the most of your earnings.  It can feel like a risky business and you are may not be familiar with all your options, so it can feel intimidating – we are here to help.

We are sure that many of you have been enjoying the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament over recent weeks and are excited to the thought that next summer we will be able to enjoy the World Cup in Qatar.

Like the different roles that players have on the pitch, each individual investor is going to take a different approach with their money: from risky products to more conservative saving plans.

This is why at Station Financial we carry out a risk assessment with all our new clients so that we can base our approach on your own risk level.

Whatever “position” you want to play, we have the right solution for you.


Players who are in defense positions need to be positionally disciplined, anticipating the points where their opponents may take the ball, and tackling rivals without committing a fault.

This is a strategic position to play and involves short passes to the midfielders to start new attacks. 

Defense can be viewed as a thoughtful, minimal risk position, with more focus on planning how to best achieve the goal over the long game, just like a long-term savings or investment plan.  


The men in the middle of the pitch need to be strategically positioned, giving options to the defenders to pass the ball, as well as sending balls forward to finish an attack. 

Not everyone likes watching midfielders passing the ball a hundred times, but no one can say that is not a great team effort.

Midfielders can be viewed as strategic, taking just the perfect level of risk to keep the opportunities coming: just like keeping your money generating new income in the mid-term.


Strikers are less involved in the buildup play, they stay forward, get in the box and strike to score!

They may miss a penalty every now and then, but they get the glory when they score.

Going for gold, strikers make the most of any opportunity to shoot and score and are the high-risk takers of the game.

If you’re more of a striker who can act quickly and take more risks, then we can explore some potential high-return investment solutions for you.

* The Parable of the Talents

Versions of the Parable of the Talents appear in the gospels of both Matthew and Luke. The story goes that a master puts his servants in charge of his goods while he is away on a trip. Upon his return, the master assesses the stewardship of his servants. He evaluates them according to how faithful each was in making wise investments of his goods to obtain a profit. It is clear that the master sought some profit from the servants' oversight. A gain indicated faithfulness on the part of the servants. The master rewards his servants according to how each has handled his stewardship. He judges two servants as having been "faithful" and gives them a positive reward. To the single "unfaithful" servant, who played it safe, a negative compensation is given.
