How and for how long do I invest?

As a Gifter, you enjoy sharing what you have. However, don’t lose sight of the future. Investment is an important part of making provision for tomorrow. With that said, it’s important to figure out what you’re investing for. That will help you make the right choice in terms of how long you need to invest to reach your end goal.

Perhaps you’re saving for a deposit on another property. Perhaps you simply want to be prepared for the unforeseen. Once you’ve decided what the purpose of your investment is, there are a few Money Secrets to guide your decisions. You can either invest a lump sum, like a tax return, or through a monthly debit order.

A lump sum will obviously start earning interest from day one, but a monthly debit order can be just as powerful. Over time, your money can grow into a sizeable investment through compound interest.

The two main secrets to investing are patience and persistence. Give your money time to grow and stick to your original game plan to reach your goals.

Have a look at how Nedbank can help you reach your investment goals here.

Should I have debt?

This is always a difficult one to determine. Surprisingly, the answer is both ‘yes’ and ‘no’. Being a Gifter, you probably have a good credit score. With that comes access to credit. While it may seem like a good a thing, it can also land you in hot water if you don’t use the credit to your disposal in a responsible manner.

Debt can be divided into good and bad debt. It’s acceptable to have good debt such as property loans and study loans. The reason for this is that an asset such as a house appreciates in value over time, while a study loan empowers an individual to qualify for well-paying jobs, which leads to a better standard of living.

Bad debt would be debt incurred by living above your financial means. This would include going on extravagant holidays, dining at classy restaurants, buying unnecessary digital gadgets and expensive gifts for friends and family.
