... as you're in the uk tigger at the risk of being boring have you got premium bonds - maximum 30k
- they pay no interest but 'prizes' instead .... the huge benefit of which is tax free, also with a decent amount you should be winning prizes all the time.
ditto ISA accounts, use your annual allowance ... again interest is tax free.
also register with national savings and get their emails, as soon as they issue an index linked certificate buy into it - the last one sold out very quickly.
