Finding the Best Investment Can Be Difficult

Finding the Best Investment Can Be Difficult

If there were a magical formula for determining the best investment, the world would be full of millionaires and poverty would mostly be a thing of the past. But, alas, investing remains a somewhat intricate endeavor that requires research, timing and (not least of all) an income that can withstand the ups and downs of the market.

There are literally thousands of investment opportunities that promise big returns, fast returns and guaranteed returns. But a smart investor knows that none of those are a reality. Finding the best investment isn’t an exact science that can produce automatic results, but a process that evolves over time and is based on a number of important evaluations.

There are a number of sectors in the market at this point in time, however, that offer some of the best options for the best investment. Again, research is needed to determine if these investments are right for your particular situation but you can use them as a guide to acquiring the best investment.

Venture capital

Rebounding from a difficult 2016 phase, venture capital investments in Europe are poised to make a comeback, according to several experts. There have been signs of a slight recovery, but caution is urged. Still, the VC market is expected to continue to be a strong draw in the UK and Ireland, as well as the VC market in other countries such as China and India. In fact, more than 50 percent of VC funds invested by UK investors will be spent overseas.


Bonds, and in particular corporate bonds, have been big sellers of late, accounting for more than £254m in net retail sales total for the first two months of 2016, far surpassing the £77m average of 2011. They are closely followed by strategic and global bonds, which have posted equally impressive gains in the first few months of 2016.  But beware the UK all company sector of the bond market, which has posted large cash outflows (cash given to stock holders as dividends or to redeem long term debt or reacquire capital stock), upwards of £250m.


Always a popular and relatively safe choice, gold continues to be a smart investment due to the fact it’s not connected to any one business and subject to bad decisions or overvaluation. That being said, gold can and does fluctuate slightly in price. In the period between 2006 and 2009, for instance, gold moved upward, then came down for a long consolidation period. But experts predict that two or three years from now, gold will begin another period of climbing so it might be wise to look into investing in this sector now.
