There are many different asset types in which you can invest, each with their own levels of risk and potential reward. As a rule of thumb, high growth potential means high risk, and vice versa.
Securities come in three varieties: equities, bonds and derivatives.
Commodities are physical things like metals (e.g. gold), resources and farm produce, which can sometimes form part of an investment portfolio. Relatively high-risk, their big advantage is that they perform independently from equities, so can be a good way to balance out your stocks and shares.
Collective investments may appeal to you if you want to invest in a range of different assets but don’t have the time or knowhow to build a portfolio yourself.
The advantages of overseas investments include tax benefits, diversifying assets portfolio, currencies appreciation, speculation opportunities etc.
