  • Kenneth Midgley
  • Ronald G. Burns


The investment policies of savers will vary according to individual circumstances and responsibilities. A discussion of some investment terms and ratios leads on to a brief account of methods of evaluating shares used by investment analysts. This is followed by a summary of the system of personal taxation and a few comments on the effect of tax on the choice of securities. The chapter concludes with a review of some of the more popular forms of security.
