Puneet’s Answer

it depends on your age. if you are in age bracket of 20 -30 then invest recurring small amount in saving schemes and Equity based funds and always looks to long term hold like 10 year , 15 year because power of compound interest is very effective.

Aleta’s Answer

Great thinking! It's fantastic to consider contributing to your 401k, especially if your company offers a match. This will help maximize the benefits and grow your retirement savings! Additionally, investing in property can be a wonderful idea. Save up for a down payment and explore the possibilities – it might just be the perfect option for you to build further wealth and secure your financial future. Keep up the enthusiasm and stay focused on your goals!

Matthew’s Answer

Start investing in your retirement now. Even if you are not of legal age to open an IRA or contribute to a 401k, start a savings account with an automatic monthly or weekly transfer so that when you legally can you have something to put into a retirement vehicle. IRAs have great tax benefits.

Investing in stocks is smart, but obviously there is risk involved even if you are conservative. You always want a good chunk of your funds FDIC insured.

Again, I'll say, your best investment is your retirement/health, and with Social Security not being a guarantee, it is never too early to start saving.

Gus’s Answer

As a student, now is a great to start investing. A basic equity fund and/or index is a great place to start. There are many popular sources that recommend investing in an S&P 500 index. These sources detail that the S&P 500 is very diversified, and it has historically outperformed other indexes, making a good opportunity for investment.

Nathan’s Answer

It all depends on your risk tolerance. If you have say $5,000 and you are ok with losing it all then you could put it into more aggressive investments. If you have that same $5,000 and you can't afford to lose any of it, you could put it into a high yield savings account, invest in Treasury bills, or a bond fund focused on United States government securities. No investment can be determined as a one-fits-all because everyone has different personal situations/risk tolerances. Other factors to consider are do you have health insurance, money to pay for rent, food, other bills.
