At any given moment the markets can react towards something and collapse. Do you like that perspective? Not so much, do you? well, that is why I made it my task – to go out to the internet and look for the instruments that are worth investing in at any given situation in the market.
Want to know where your assets are going to be safe? Keep on reading!
- Real estate.
- Owning part of the business.
- Owning your own business.
- Peer-to-peer funding.
1. Real estate.
Becoming a land lord as a tempting perspective. Owning your own apartment and/or house is one thing. But to make money simply because you own your house is even better. And the best thing is that here there are absolutely no imitations for you. you are only limited by your imagination and your assets.
You can buy a house, an apartment, several apartments, apartment complex and even just a storage facility. You can get in alone, with a partner, with variety of partners and so on.
Varying on the condition and placement you can make your money back with various speed, but still, a perspective none of us would say no to.
2. Owning part of the business.
A perfect example for those who doesn’t wants a lot of responsibility, but who still wants to invest in something. Owning part of the business or engage in the crowdfunding is fun and entertaining, and a perfect way to get your money right back when you decide to pull out. But why would you?
Sure, the earnings are going to be slow in the beginning, but imagine what is going to happen if the business really goes up, like Apple. You are going to be one of the original investors. And the earlier you get on, the bigger the percentage you get is going to be.
3. Owning your own business.
That is FOR those who want to become responsible adults and want to be their own boss. But there is one minus here – you have the full responsibility falling onto your shoulders. But, you do not need to be afraid to be scammed by your partners. Your money is your money; your deadlines are your deadlines. And you are your own boss. How cool does that sound?
Gold is everything – stable to inflation rates; highly liquid as market’s asset; valuable in the terms of the long-term storage. Its every trait gives it the right to be above all of the stocks and equities when to comes to the attractiveness of the asset. Plus, gold is barely correlated with the other assets, do you know it is not going to be all jumpy, when the other instruments go belly-up.
Gold is considered to be one of the safe havens for traders in the times lie we see at the moment. It, along with just a couple of other assets is always growing when everything else is suffering.
5. Peer-to-peer funding.
A new thing that recently came to my attention, peer-to-peer funding looks a lot like the crowdfunding. Basically a business that didn’t seem worthy to the banks comes up on the internet and asks people like you and me to fund it. In return they are going to pay you off with monthly fixed payments including your percentage from the business’ profits.
Is looks risky just because you are going to be giving your money to a business that did not qualify for the bank loan, which means something is off with its numbers, but that is entirely your decision.
