Investing - directing your money to suitable investment solutions may help make your dreams a reality!
There are several external factors that can impact your income. Investing could help you enjoy the following benefits:
Cost of living has increased, and no matter where you live, everything around has become more expensive. So, over time, you need more money to buy the same quantity / quality of goods or services. Returns earned from your investments can enable you to manage your inflation-related financial burden better.
Manage Personal Financial Crisis
Personal emergencies sometimes cause financial stress. An emergency fund, through the returns on your investments, can help manage some of your financial stress.
Emergency fund = ready cash at home (about 20% of the fund amount) + investment in a highly liquid investment solution to withdraw whenever the need be.
Enjoy Unearned Income
