We all know that young people never think of retirement. If you are 25 or 30 you think that you will be young forever. But life is merciless. You will get old sooner or later. And having got old you will have to solve numerous financial problems. You will still have to pay bills and rent, you will still have to buy clothes and food. You will have to pay for your medical insurance.
How can you pay for that is you are not working? You do not work not because you do not feel like working, but you do not work because you have retired. You are an old man who needs to take more care of his health. Usually retired couples travel a lot. They see friends and relatives. They nurse grandchildren. They devote more time to themselves and their hobbies. It is impossible to work the entire life. One need the time to rest.
If you do not want to live a poor life after retirement you should have enough money to cover living expenses. Where can you find it? Sure, the money is at your bank account. In order to have enough money, you should start saving since you are a young man.
In order to have enough money you need to save it and invest it. Money must make more money. Your money should not stay hidden at your home. Invest it and make your money work for you.
There are many investment tools which you can choose. Perhaps the most important issue in retirement investment is security of your money. You have probably heard on TV and in printed mass media the story of Bernard Madoff. He stole money from thousands of people. His investment firm turned out to be a scam, a giant financial pyramid. We know that some people invested their retirement funds in Madoff’s company. Now there people lost everything. Some of them had to go back to work. It is not easy to get back to work when you are 70.
Thus, you should not make any decisions in a hurry. Talk to your family and friends. Talk to professionals. Investment managers will suggest what investment tools you should use.
You also need to understand that the most profitable retirement investment tools are the riskiest ones. Thus, if you want to invest in the stock market you should understand that you may lose part of your money. If the company you invested in turned bankrupt you may loose all your savings.
Try to use several different investment tools. A combination of investment tools will secure the greatest results. Open a bank deposit where your money will be safe, and invest part of the money in real estate. If some investment tool proves ineffective you will not lose everything you have.
