Risk warnings and important information
None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.

5 Long Term Investments to Avoid in 2018

5 Long Term Investments to Avoid in 2018 -  Ask the experts at Compare The Financial Markets 

The following long term investments are not well seen by many financial experts, and you will want to think twice before putting your money in them. 

- The banking sector. Many banks across Europe have recovered in 2017, but there are still plenty that face economic challenges. This makes the banking sector an uncertain one for small and big investors alike. One thing's certain: if you want to make investments in the banking sector, you want professional advice to make the right decisions.

- Oil companies. Although oil will continue to be vital for the developed countries for many years to come, long term investments are a bad idea for most, especially since investments in renewable energy are becoming more and more rewarding all over the world.

- Corporate bonds. These are not only expensive, but also quite risky for most investors. While you shouldn't dismiss these out of hand, there are many financial experts writing for UK publications that urge investors interested in corporate bonds to be cautious.

- Government bonds. Some experts regard them as overvalued, especially gilts, which have stopped being the risk-free return gems that they used to be. Three countries where government bonds yields are expected to fall, or to rise by so little as to make them unsatisfactory investments this year are Germany, the UK, and the United States.

- Real estate in Greece, Spain, and Eastern Europe. Few investors bother with these kinds of investments, and for a good reason. The problematic economy of these countries makes long term investments in property risky and unrewarding. There's no need to take any risks with these when you can focus instead on the promising UK real estate market, or look to opportunities in South America, and especially in Brazil.

Long term investments involve larger sums and bring more risks than short term ones, which is why if you want to make them you should get expert help from a powerful financial group such as Compare the Financial Markets.
