Investing for Beginners: How Can I Make My Money Grow?
March 8, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) If you're new to investment, there are a wealth of options available to you. It can be difficult to know where to place your money to allow it to grow. In this article, we'll look at some of the most popular routes for new investors. Keep reading to learn more!
Invest in property
If you have a sizeable amount of money to invest, one of the safest routes to take is to purchase property. Large returns rarely come quickly, so you must be patient, but over the long term there is scope for significant growth of your investment.
Start your search in an area you know well, and don't be afraid to target a fixer-upper to get the most for your money. As long as the property is structurally sound, you will be able to make renovations to increase its property, either by yourself or with the help of tradespeople. This investment can also yield regular income if you decide to rent it out to tenants.
Invest in a business
You may know a budding entrepreneur with a great idea and an enticing business plan; the only missing part of the puzzle is a starting fund. Consider their business as an investment opportunity. Yields can vary, and of course there is a possibility that your outlay will not be repaid for a long time, if at all. However, if you have confidence in the business and the ability of its owner, providing an initial investment can help you to diversify and expand your portfolio.
Join a crowdfunding effort
Some businesses use crowdfunding to find their initial investment or to generate funds along the way. Entrepreneurs may also decide to explore personal finance options; click here to learn more about each alternative.
Joining a crowdfunding drive allows you to spread your risk. In many instances, the fund is pulled from several backers with relatively small investments. Although all investments carry a risk, a smaller amount means that if the business does not succeed, you have less to lose than if you were the sole backer with a large investment. It's also a great introduction for new investors who want to try their hand without making a large financial commitment.
Invest in the stock market
When we think of investments, many of us think immediately of the stock market. Certainly, it is a popular route of investing, with the potential for huge returns in the long and short term. Whilst it is tempting to pour your money into a 'sure thing', be cautious. Shares can fall just as easily as they rise, and you are better served by thinking in the long term rather than making a quick buck. There are no guaranteed winners but be sensible about the companies you invest in; buy shares that offer a good chance of long-term stability in the first instance. If you wish to have a flutter on a more volatile company, dabble diligently.
Invest in cryptocurrencies
We've heard a lot about cryptocurrencies in recent times. The explosion of value in Bitcoin hit the news at the end of last year, and there certainly is more interest in the market. Proceed with caution, however; the value of cryptocurrencies has been shown time and again to be unpredictable. If you're looking to diversify with the potential for a large return, it's worth consideration. As with all investments, plan for the worst-case scenario, and enjoy any returns should they arise.
