Interest Paying Investments
Investing doesn't just mean locking money up for a long term. Some investments manage to combine a long term capital gain on the assets with short term rewards along the way. The best known is buying property to rent so that the owner benefits from the rent money as well as hopefully an increase in property value. There are a lot more however, including term deposits, bonds, debentures, and secured or unsecured notes. Remember that interest is also very variable with some different approaches including floating and fixed rates, and different time periods such as fixed term or at call. Let Shire Financial Advice explain your options and help you find the financial product that will work best for you.
One of the most popular options is to invest in the markets and have your money grow with their success. The good thing is that it gives you a stake in the game and can bring some excitement but there is also the risk that share values can go down when markets dip so that it is unprofitable to sell for long periods of time. Plus there are the choices to be made between individual company holdings, portfolios, or foreign investments which complicate the decision. Let Shire Financial Advice help you decide.
Let the professionals do the work for you. A managed fund is one where the decisions are made by a financial expert but with your input. The money might go into Exchange Traded Funds or Listed Investments on the Australian Securities Exchange or could be spread across industry sectors and global regions.
