Do you know that $100,000 invested in S&P Index fund 30 years ago,
Would be worth now $843,000?
And, $100,000 saved in highly yield bank savings account 1% annually 30 years ago,
Would be worth $134,969?
Saving money without investing, is the equivalent of the hamster who moves nowhere while running on the wheel, and tires themselves out in the process.
Saving without investing leaves you behind in the end.
The best and safest way to start investing is investing in Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
An ETF offers investors a way to invest in many stocks without buying them all individually.
It gives you the opportunity to invest in a lot of companies with less money.
Take S&P 500 ETF for example:
You can invest in companies in the technology, consumer staples, healthcare, financial, industrial, energy, and utility sectors by purchasing a single stock.
An S&P 500 ETF allows you to acquire pieces of Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Visa, Tesla, Berkshire Hathaway, Johnson&Johnson, and many more all in a single stock.
In doing so, you are able to essentially become a part owner in all of the biggest companies with the best returns while minimizing the potential risk of losses.
An important issue you have to pay attention to when buying index fund: THE FEES,
For example, an initial $10,000 investment in an index fund that earns 8% annually and charge 0.05% annual fees will grow to: $108,000 in 30 years.
The same investment in an actively managed fund that charges a 1% annual fee will grow to: $81,000
The fees you pay on your investments should be one of the first things you look for when choosing your investments.
Even paying just 1% in annual fees can drain your portfolio drastically over time.
When building your portfolio, prioritize using low cost index funds that charge less than 0.15% annually.
