Unimpressed by Royal Mail share issue
I AM still awaiting my Royal Mail share allocation number which we were assured would be with us almost immediately the shares were released.
I cannot say I am impressed with the way that the whole affair has been handled.
With interest rates at rock bottom, this share offer seemed to be one way to make a return on an investment but currently I can see the whole affair collapsing around us.
By the time we get a number the share prices could have tumbled and we will get very little return.

It appears these shares were totally undervalued and that because of this the response from the general public was enormous.
Huge numbers of people are seeing little or no return on their savings and so here was an opportunity to realise at least some return on their investment.
As usual it seems those who will benefit most will be the banks and presumably the government whilst the small investors are once again left out in the cold.
While it may be possible to invest in a number of high risk schemes I am of the opinion that this is not the way forward.
Saving over the years you do not want to risk all you have on a scheme that might yield high returns but could lose most of your savings.
Over the years there have been a few opportunities to invest in something worthwhile but these have been very rare. I think that the only solution may be to go and blow it all on a holiday or perhaps a fast car.
