Why should you invest? To make money, beat inflation, and guarantee your future financial stability.
If you keep your money in your back pocket instead of investing it, your money doesn’t work for you and you will never have more money than what you save. By investing your money, you are getting your money to generate more money by earning interest on what you put away or by buying and selling assets that increase in value.
It really doesn’t matter how you do it. Whether you invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, structured notes and ETF’s, precious metals, real estate, your own small business, or any combination thereof, the objective is the same: to make investments that will generate more cash for you in the future.
Whether your goal is to send your kids to college or to retiring abroad somewhere in the sun, investing is essential to getting you where you want to be.
