I recently started working for a large international company that is a big player in its industry on a global scale.
I only have very limited investment experience (a Lifetime ISA which is managed by the provider and buying shares in the Post Office when the government sold their stake in it).
My employer offers the chance to apply for a SIP (Share Incentive Plan) which I can contribute to monthly.
As I understand it, contributions to a SIP will be made pre-tax so my monthly contribution would be taken from my gross salary.
I don't have any concerns about investing in the company and I would say it's probably a relatively 'safe' investment, based on my limited knowledge of the work that they are involved with, and how they are looking to progress (at least, in the particular division I work in).
Are there particular things I should take into consideration before deciding whether or not to invest in the SIP? If so, what sort of things?
