DIY Investor defines and unites a community of self-directed investors.

It delivers timely information to experienced investors as well as education to those new to savings and investment.

As a founding principle it has the archaic northern English or Scottish saying ‘mony a mickle maks a muckle’ – broadly, many small things combined over time create something larger; a blueprint for successful savings and investment.
