The Share Centre has been crowned the UK's best stockbroker by independent financial services research organisation Investment Trends for the fourth year in the row.

The investment supermarket was given the accolade after recording the highest overall client satisfaction in the independent study of Britain's retail investing market which took into account responses from 13,869 investors and traders.

While positive reviews have their place, when it comes when mulling over what investment platform to use, investors should take a closer look at what the platform offers to ensure that it is the best for what they seek to do.

What is an investment?

An investment – or investing – is a long way from putting your cash in a bank account where it sits to earn interest. An investment is a gamble: instead of the security of guaranteed returns, you're taking a risk with your money. The hope is that you make a lot more than you put in (a juicy profit), but there's the possibility you end up with less (a nasty loss).

You can invest in almost anything, from the most mainstream popular targets...
  • Shares
  • Bonds
  • Funds
  • Government bonds (gilts)
  • UK property market

... to the rather more exotic, such as...
  • Farmland
  • Vintage cars
  • Wine
  • Fledgling technology firms
  • Art, eg, paintings, sculptures

Being a good investor is all about education. There are so many facets to investing, that one person or blog just doesn't have everything. In fact, you can spend years and years researching investing topics, and there will still be things to learn or stones left to turn. That's why it's important to turn to the best investing blogs.

This is the sixth edition of the best investing blogs to follow. We started this list to put together a single resource of amazing investors and their blogs - and over time that list has changed and evolved.

So, if you want to continue to learn and read about interesting investment ideas, follow the investing blogs on this list. While they might not all be professional investors (although some are and make a living from it), they all write about their experiences and share their knowledge.

Get your bookmarks ready, here are the best investing blogs of 2020. At the end of the post, we also include a round-up of all the investing blogs we could find.
