When you've come into a sum of money, perhaps through earnings, an inheritance, or a redundancy package, there are multiple options available to you. Spending the money, pay off debt or saving it for future expenses are possibilities, as is growing the sum through investing in an investment plan. The type of fund you invest in and the level of risk you're willing to accept can impact your potential capital growth over time.
Monthly regular saving is an effective method for amassing money over time to reach your financial goals. However, if you already have a lump sum, investing could be a good option for you. The returns from investing in a fund can often exceed those from a cash deposit account.
Your decision to invest will be shaped by your financial objectives. Are you aiming for short-term or long-term gains? For short-term goals like saving for a holiday, a bank deposit account may be the best choice. However, for long-term goals, such as education costs, investing could be more beneficial. Investing in a fund(s) can provide an opportunity to earn inflation-beating returns over the medium to long term.
Investing a lump sum inherently involves a degree of risk. Typically, the higher the potential return you seek from your savings and investments, the greater the risk of your capital you must accept.
