The Investor Index 2023

The leading voice in investor confidence

Originally launched in 2020 in response to pandemic-driven speculation and uncertainties in the investment world, The Investor Index, has become an award-winning and invaluable market study of consumer confidence and investment trends.

Delivered in partnership by The Nursery, and strategic communications agency AML, 2023 marks the fourth year of the Investor Index. To launch this year’s research, clients & professionals from across the financial services industry were invited to a panel discussion of key findings.

The most recent report delves into the future of financial advice, ESG, and AI, and has gained recognition in over 30 prestigious publications including Investment week, Reuters, London Stock Exchange, Motley Fool and more.

Key findings from 2023

  • Investor confidence is on the up – they are feeling more in control, well-informed & confident.
  • However, investors are wary of rocking the boat; they’re not taking unnecessary risks.
  • Market-wide uncertainties, including the cost-of-living crisis and reduced household income, have driven investors to challenge the cost/benefit of advice.
  • AI investing (Robo advice & Chat GPT) is the future of the investing.
