Some great reasons to invest using funds

In order to build your wealth, you will want to invest your money.  Investing allows you to put your money in vehicles that have the potential to earn strong rates of return.

If you don’t invest, you are missing out on opportunities to increase your financial worth.  Of course, you have the potential to lose your money in investments, but if you invest wisely, the potential to gain money is higher than if you never invest.

 

An investment fund groups together money from many people, and fund managers use that money to invest in a wide range of assets.

If you’re investing for the first time, or don’t want to manage your money yourself night and day, using funds is a solid option, because the fund manager does the investment selection and day-to-day management for you.

 

Here are five great reasons to invest using funds.

  1. Chance of higher returns than your bank account

Irish-based funds generated an average 8.0%* annual return over 5 years compared to 0.4% over 5 years from an average bank account.

 

  1. Diversification or “spreading your risk”

Sometimes described as the only free lunch in the investment world, diversification means that your money is spread across multiple assets.  Funds are a simple way to achieve this.  This reduces your risk of losses by limiting your exposure to any single under performing asset.  It gives your money multiple opportunities to grow and smooths your returns over time.

 

  1. Wide choice of investment opportunities

Several professionally managed investment funds are available to Irish investors through Bruen Financial Services. This gives you a wide range of choices to suit the kind of risk level you are comfortable taking, and you can move funds periodically – for example, you can move the money into lower-risk funds towards the end of your investment timeframe.

 

  1. Easy to add to, change, or withdraw your funds anytime

You can monitor your funds online anytime, and for most people, there’s no notice period or charges for withdrawing your money. In Ireland, investments are often held via a life assurance policy.  When you invest using a life assurance policy, you can usually buy, sell, and add to your account without triggering a tax charge.
