While many of us are looking for ways to cut back on our day-to-day spending, latest research from Mintel finds that amongst wealthy Brits (those with at least £100k to invest) one in every four (26%) is planning to take a gamble and expand their investment portfolio in the very near future. And so rather than viewing the present economic climate as a barrier to investing, they see the crisis as an opportunity to pick up a good deal.Breaking this figure down, Mintel’s research shows that as many as one in five (19%) would like to invest in equities such as an equity ISA or individual company shares, one in twelve (8%) would consider buying property, while 3% is planning to buy alternative investments such as vintage cars, art or commodity funds.
