Best Way To Invest Money [2021]

Why are Banks are willing to pay for your investment?

The best way to invest money is to get somebody else to invest their money for you. Banks are willing to pay for your investment, without any additional security with one caveat! - it has to be property.

Bankers understand financial risk, they have armies of actuaries studying the risk profile of the banks' investment opportunities. The higher their risk, the higher the return on investment they require to mitigate those risks. And the interest they charge is where banks achieve their desired return on investment. 

It might be a surprise to you, but when you borrow money from a bank, they consider it as an investment in you and your enterprise.  

What do the banks consider as the best way to invest their money?

So if you want to know what banks consider their lowest risk, simply look at what they are willing to finance and at what interest rate they will charge you.

Banks borrow money from the general public (called "savings accounts") and offer interest rates to the "savers" of between o% and 3% .

Banks also borrow money from the Reserve bank at an interest rate known as the "Repo Rate"  which has recently been reduced to 3.5%.

The Reserve bank has declared the sale of the century. This the lowest the Repo Rate  has ever been!

The banks in turn invest that money by lending it to the public. They make their money by adding a mark-up to the cost of the money they borrow. 

Now, lets see how banks apply their wealth of knowledge to the risks to decide the best way to invest their money. 

Personal loans - High Risk

Small personal loans are available with no collateral, but a whopping interest rate of up to 24.5% . That's 21% more than it costs them. Clearly this type of loan is in the high risk=high reward category. 

Vehicle finance - Medium Risk 

Vehicle finance is a bit cheaper as the banks will require the vehicle as collateral and will charge you between 10% and 13%. They are content with a markup of around 7 to 10 percent. 

Property Loans - Low Risk

BUT, with property finance, they will go as low as 6%, only marking up their cost of money by 3%! They are happy with such low returns, because they require that you provide the property as collateral, and BANKS UNDERSTAND PROPERTY !
