Financial Investment Opportunities

Financial Investment Services Explained

7 min read

Do you want to be in charge of your financial investment opportunities? Will you invest through the stock market, real estate, or another way? There are many ways you can take charge of your financial wealth. Whether you decide to allow a financial advisor to be in charge, you do it yourself, or both, you have options.

You need to know what you can do if you are in charge of your financial investments. There are more than four ways to invest. So don’t be tied to just 4. There are:

  • Real estate
  • Precious Metals
  • Stocks
  • Bonds
  • Mutual Funds
  • Equities

These are just a few ways you can invest. If you want to buy digital gold or have gold bars, then you can. Especially when you take matters into your own hands, but if you’re going to be in charge, make sure you know what you’re doing. Be smart with your money!

Financial Investment

Do You Know Where to Start?

Have you ever found yourself at the annual family BBQ, and the topic quickly turns to money? Your brother-in-law Dave, who, for background information, has done quite well for himself.

Some financial investment, a lucky break in the stock market, or something. Now he’s cruising around in his fancy new BMW, on the yacht, and European on vacation. You’re secretly envious: perfect kids, perfect wife -well, it is your sister, perfect house, and even the perfect dog. You want to gag.

Your always-eager cousin is asking for investment advice. Should he go long on Facebook? What about the trade wars with China? Will they impact his portfolio? You’re standing there trying to figure out if you should say anything. Do you admit you have no idea what a stock, mutual fund, or ETF is? Heck, you don’t know what ETF stands for. You suck up your pride and admit you need help.

Similarly, your cousin Peter is not saying too much, either. You assume he feels the same way as you. Having slaved away for the past 25 years in his plumbing business, he must also feel the pinch. I know you can relate to this situation. 

What’s Your Mindset?

Pop quiz. Which of these do you agree with?

  1. Most millionaires inherit their money.
  2. You need money to make money
  3. There’s no way Peter can be a millionaire
  4. You should invest 10% of your income
  5. Anyone can become a millionaire

If you agree with the first three statements, you come from a fixed mindset. If you agree with the second two, you’ve got a financial growth mindset. Don’t fret, though. Today, I will show you that you can have what Dave has with the proper financial investment and guidance. Perhaps even more.

Let’s Define Financial Investment

The idea behind a financial investment is simple. You put money into an asset, hoping it’ll appreciate and “grow” over time. When the time comes, you sell it at a higher (hopefully) price.

During all this time, you earn money or dividends just by owning it. Take Microsoft stock, for example. Say it pays a dividend of $5 per share. You own 500 shares. Do the math, and you get paid $2,500 for owning the stock!

It’s a win-win all around. Now, it’s your choice what that asset is. Some people prefer to put their money into assets like stocks, mutual funds, and real estate, to name a few. They can make that financial investment themselves.

Or they can pay someone from Fidelity to manage their portfolio. Someone typically manages things like 401Ks. But on occasion, someone will take matters into their own hands.

Again, if you’re playing with your retirement, you must know what you’re doing. Are you saving money? I chuckle as I think of the song “Bills, Bills, Bills” by Destinys Child. And sometimes that feels like my life, haha.

For many, the thought of saving even $100 a paycheck is enough to induce anxiety, or at least the lyrics to the song. Between the heating bill, groceries, cell phone, car payment, and the new roof you need – I get it, money’s tight, and you can’t afford to “invest.” But let me tell you this: you can’t afford not to.

Why Do I Need to Invest?

Many think putting money away from each paycheck into their savings account is investing. I hate to break it to you, but you’re not investing. Many bank-owned “savings” accounts have dismal interest rates – think 2%. What sets a financial investment apart from your “savings” is the value of time. Or what time signifies. Enter what Albert Einstein said was the 8th Wonder of the WorldCompounding Interest.

Remember the questions above, “most millionaires inherit their money” or “you need money to make money.” Or better yet, I’ll start saving later once I pay off my credit card…. you get my point. You don’t need much money to start because compounding Interest can make you a millionaire. With the right financial investment, anyone can become a millionaire, especially if you start young.

Take your quiet cousin Peter, for example. Peter is the proud owner of “Pete’s Plumbing” for the last 25 years. At 25, he opened his business, married, bought a house, and opened an investing account. It was a big year for Peter.

For the last 25 years, Peter’s been diligently socking away 10% of his $50,000 yearly income. Since then, he has set up automatic bi-weekly withdrawals from his checking account to his investment vehicle of choice: stocks. He didn’t notice the money was gone.

Fast forward to 50-year-old Peter sitting on his deck with his wife, dreaming about retirement only 15 years away. Assuming conservative returns of 10% in the stock market, saving and investing only 10% of his income, he will have a staggering $2,434,221 at 65!

This number can be much more if he saves and invests more, but you get my point.

Final Thoughts: Financial Investment

Shockingly, the average American, within 15 years of retirement, saves at only one-third the rate required to maintain their current standard of living. If you only have 15 years to retire, start saving and investing now. Do not underestimate this power.

I don’t think I’m alone in my feelings about compound interest. If you’re not saving and investing, you’re missing out on one of the biggest secrets in life. Merely saving and investing small amounts of money in the stock market every month is a sure-fire way for people of modest means to become financially independent. Just look at Peter. Pete’s a smart guy who googled Purell hand sanitizer stock during the pandemic.

Sadly, human has a great way of rationalizing their actions. We don’t tell ourselves, “I’m never going to save and invest.” Instead, we say, “I am going to save and invest; I’m just going to start tomorrow.” Don’t start tomorrow; let us show you how now.
