After all, the FTSE 100 is still down around 20% since the start of the year, while many of its members are trading at even bigger losses.However, the long-term growth potential of the stock market is relatively high. At a time when cash and bonds offer extremely disappointing returns and buy-to-let property is out of reach for many investors, building a diverse portfolio of stocks is likely to be a sound means of generating high returns. That’s especially the case for investors who do not have large sums of capital.For example, UK shares have generally offered high-single-digit annual returns over recent decades. Assuming such a rate of return on a £100 monthly investment over a 40-year working lifetime could lead to a portfolio valued at £350,000. From that, a 4% annual passive income would equate to around £14,000. That’s more than 50% higher than the State Pension, which could mean you enjoy greater financial freedom in older age.Investing money in British stocks todayInvesting money in UK shares is now easier than ever. Various share-dealing providers offer regular investing services so that you can buy £100 worth of stocks on a monthly basis at commission rates that are as low as £1.50 per trade.Of course, diversifying across a wide range of companies is imperative for all investors. For smaller investors who are starting out, tracker funds that mimic the performance of an index such as the FTSE 100 may be a sound move. They offer exposure to a wide range of businesses, which could reduce your overall risks. It may also mean that you enjoy greater returns over the coming years, as some sectors outperform others following the recent economic downturn.Buying UK shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA could be another worthwhile move. No tax is payable on amounts invested through an ISA. This could improve your long-term return prospects, while penalty-free withdrawals may mean that you enjoy greater flexibility when it comes to budgeting for retirement. As such, now could be the right time to start buying stocks in an ISA for the long term. It has the potential to improve your prospects of retiring early.

Ahmet Zappa Responds To Dweezil’s ‘Misleading’ Zappa Plays Zappa Claims With Open Letter

first_imgLast week, we heard an outraged Dweezil Zappa publicly oust his brother Ahmet for charging him an “exorbitant fee” to perform the music of Frank Zappa, and forcing him to change the band of his Zappa Plays Zappa band. In a new open letter, Ahmet Zappa tells his side of the story, and takes a much more moderate and understanding tone than his brother.In the letter, Ahmet says that the “exorbitant fee” was simply $1 per year, and that Dweezil blew things well out of proportion in his New York Times interview.  “You’ve only been told that you can’t keep using the name without agreeing to a fee of $1 per year, which you’re fully aware of, but never mentioned in your interviews,” said Ahmet in his open letter. Not only that, but the family apparently has no problem with the band name either. “Fact: You can absolutely keep touring under the name Zappa Plays Zappa,” he says. “You could do it tomorrow, and honestly, I hope you will. You’re a fucking guitar god and in my opinion one of the best guitar players in the world. You do an amazing job playing our father’s music with total integrity. Your tours help keep Frank’s name alive, just like the work Gail and I have done through the ZFT.” It’s nice to see Ahmet trying to bridge the gap between brothers.Another shrewd point made by Ahmet: Dweezil gets paid by the Zappa Family Trust. “When the ZFT does have profits, we split them between the four of us. I’m getting enough heat on social media that I’m betting a lot of people don’t realize that you also receive funds from the ZFT. Even when you do pay fees to use the Zappa name, and sell Zappa merchandise, you receive a portion of the profits from it.”The letter also mentions that he has tried to hold family meetings, but Dweezil has declined the opportunity to do so. “I’ve been reaching out to you for months. I even tried to set up a family meeting so we could discuss all of our family issues, but you repeatedly said you couldn’t fit it into your schedule, and that you weren’t available to attend without your lawyers present.”It’s a sad state of affairs, and hopefully these two can put their differences behind them.
