People invest for many different reasons. After factoring in tax and inflation, chances are that funds held in low interest savings accounts may lose value in real terms over time.
To stay ahead of inflation and taxation, you may need to invest in assets that deliver a higher return over time.
The key to successful investing is identifying your investment goals and the time frame over which you want to invest. Whether you’re investing for the next 10, 20 or 30 years, history suggests that time is on your side and that the returns from investing for growth are likely to reward the volatility you endure along the way.
