Whether you’re just dipping your toes in the water or if you look forward to the clashing of bulls and bears every day, stock markets offer a great investment avenue provided you play the markets with caution.

Haven’t considered investing in stocks yet?

Putting cash under the mattress is old-school. Let’s say you have a bank account and maybe some fixed deposits, but how far will your savings grow with money constantly taking a beating at the hands of inflation. It’s smart to diversify your investments, and here’s why you should consider investing in the stock market:

  • The combination of high inflation and low interest rates means that your savings will decrease in value over the long run, as the value of money drops. Hence, you need long-term investment in stocks that will reap you higher returns as the economy grows.
  • A balanced portfolio of stocks, bonds, fixed deposits, gold and Forex will not only safeguard you from excessive risk but also help grow your investments far more than just savings in the bank.
