What Benefits Are There To Regular Investment?

It’s all very well getting along on what you earn, or what you make from your business, but what happens when things aren’t going so well?  Do you have money to fall back on?  Learning the benefits of investment can ensure a secure future for your company, your family and yourself as an individual.

Build funds gradually for a secure financial future

Apart from the satisfaction of a good job well done, regular investment of sums you can afford can assist you to build a lump sum; by using individual amounts of money on a regular basis for investment purposes, you can gradually build a portfolio over a period of years which will bring potentially healthy returns, whether as an income or as a cash windfall.  Fund managers will always advise investment sooner rather than later, to take advantage of the opportunities which come up and may not appear again for some time.

There are a huge range of different investment companies, investing in a variety of different sectors.  Whereas some investment companies allow individuals to pay a minimal monthly figure to build their portfolio, others work with sums in the millions and operate at a different level entirely.  The principles are the same however, no matter what sums are involved.

Reduce risk with regular investments

The benefit of regular investment is that no matter what temporary fluctuations hit the stock market, the overall trend is historically upwards. So with a long term approach, clients can expect their portfolio to increase in value, although there are no guarantees.  Investing at the same time each month rather than reacting to how the market changes means that the average cost of the units or shares your fund manager purchases on your behalf is lowered.

Improve your country’s future with growth funds

There are a range of different investment directions to take, which your fund manager will advise when you start building your portfolio.  For example if your fund manager uses your investment for growth funds, this means your money goes to invest in smaller companies, usually with less than 1000 employees and below a certain turnover.

Growth funds typically appeal to many ethically minded investors who see their role not just as making money but in assisting the growth of companies which can carry the country forward into a better economic future, whether these are companies at home, or based in developing countries around the world.

You can choose your management structure

If you choose to invest in tracker funds you can expect a roller coaster as your fund typically mirrors the fluctuations of the stock market.  Investment is possible with lower management fees, although the fund is not actively managed so this can be a negative for less experienced investors.

It is important to consider your objectives before you opt for particular investments or management structures, and consider how much experience you have in the sector you want to invest in; would it, for instance, be better to trust an established company with your funds?  Think about why you need the funds. Ultimately, remember that investment is a serious business which can have lows as well as highs.
