Cautious Investor

As a cautious investor, you are willing to accept very small sporadic losses, with your primary focus being capital preservation but also generating slightly higher returns.

A guide to investing with little money

Slowly funnel your savings into investments

The truth is that you don’t need to have a large amount to start investing. It’s more beneficial to invest smaller amounts of money regularly and consistently rather than investing a large amount at once. By investing a small sum of money each month, you are less vulnerable to market fluctuations.

Diversify your assets

Mitigate your risk by building a diversified portfolio. This entails distributing your money across different asset classes, market sectors and countries. This will help level out any fluctuations in the market.

Invest for the long-term

Investing small amounts of money every month might seem insignificant, but over 20 or 30 years, you could have built a very significant amount of wealth. The best way to invest is for the long-term because the longer your hold your investment, the more time you have to power through the bad times until the market recovers.

The advantages and risks of investing in bonds

In simple terms, bonds are fixed-income investments issued by governments and corporations when they want to raise money, and they usually pay the buyer (you) a stated interest rate. Unlike stocks, bonds issued by companies give you no ownership rights, so, you don't necessarily benefit from the company's growth.

  • Advantages

    Bonds tend to rise and fall less dramatically than stocks, which means their prices tend to fluctuate less. Certain bonds can provide a level of income stability.

  • Risks

    Historically, bonds have provided lower long-term returns than stocks. The prices of bonds fall when interest rates go up. Long-term bonds particularly suffer from price fluctuations as interest rates rise and fall.
    By diversifying your portfolio, you can curb the risks you would be taking by putting all your money in a single type of investment.
