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.

A Short List of the Best Short Term Investments

A Short List of the Best Short Term Investments

Short term investments refer to investments that expire within a year (usually) like stocks and bonds. Here is a short list of the best short term investments:

-Foreign markets: To be more specific, Asian markets are currently very popular. Eastern companies are earning more than they spend and can show a quick growth for your investment. Some European markets are also climbing as they recover from the (by now) infamous recession.

-Gold: A stable investment that has shown solid returns for the past five years. Investing in gold is fairly straight-forward and a good way to enter the market (especially with an abundance of information available at your fingertips it's a popular topic), making it one of the best short term investments.

-Buying and selling of property: A hobby to some, flipping of houses or any other types of property has become quite popular. As an investor, you can buy a house and have it renovated, before then reselling it at a higher price. Please do note that knowledge of construction costs (or a trustworthy expert at your side) is an absolute necessity here. 

-Unit trusts: Don't have the time (or the mogul know-how) to invest in stocks? Putting your money into a unit trust will provide you with access to stocks and quick returns. In a unit trust, small amounts from different people are pooled together and then invested into specified stocks. It's a great way for beginners to learn the market.

Short term investments can round out your portfolio perfectly. They present the investor with the opportunity to have their money grow at a fast rate and, should a crisis hit, they can be liquidated in a short amount of time.

Choosing the best investment can be difficult, so careful consideration is crucial. Your questions on best investments will be answered by our industry experts, free of charge.
