Pensions Advice for Expats: Retirement Investments
28 April 2017 @ 16:34

If investing in a pension plan is not your sort of “thing”, it would be a good idea to check out the alternatives on how you could best invest for your retire income. Many of us are now beginning to think that actual pensions plans are not such good investments when it comes to retirement planning. Part of the problem is that politicians have messed around with pension rules a lot, and now the entire market is beginning to look less attractive to investors ans savers. Also, are young people going to be able to afford to invest in both a pension and a home? Buying a new home is expensive enough these days, and many young people are not going to be able to buy a home and invest in a pension plan. So, what are the alternatives?

Foreign Exchange Rates

If you are interested in investing part of your income on the foreign exchange rate market, it may be a good idea to look into offshore banking. Not only do offshore banks offer better rates of interests, but many of them are also very flexible when it comes to allow you to trade in different currencies. You may be able to move your money around different currencies much quicker when you have an off shore bank account. You may not want to move your money more than once a year, but is always a good idea to keep your eyes in the foreign exchange rate market.

Stock and Shares

Do you want to invest in the stock market? The stock market can be a very risky place, but at the same time, you can make a really good profit by investing in the stock market. Hiring a stock broker is one way of doing it, but you could learn how to trade yourself as well. There are a number on sites online which can help you, and point you in the right direction. It is called self investing and has made a lot of people a lot of money. Just make sure that you do not risk all of your capital when making your investments. There are plenty of online sites where you can receive good advice and you may even want to check out Youtube.

Property Market

The first thing you want to do is to pay off your own mortgage. Once you have done that, there is no reason why you cannot look into buy to let. It is a good idea, but make sure you invest in a good area. Buying a buy to let property abroad may not be the best investment. It would be better to invest in a country like the United Kingdom to make sure you get a good return on your investment.

We do tend to be a little bit worried about investing on our own without using a financial adviser, but it is one of the best way to make the most out of your money once you have learned how. That knowledge is not going to come over night, and you may have to study a bit. Above all, don't be frighten of offshore banking and foreign currency exchange rates. You will be pleasantly surprised when you discover how easy it is to be your investment adviser, and invest on your own. Remember to start with small amounts, and never invest more than you can afford. More than anything, learn the importance of saving money.
