Although from year to year more and more people are starting to enter investment world, the number still needs to be increased so that the domestic investor base is larger than foreigners.
Investment is not only a way to learn to set aside money, but more than that, investment can even be used as a way to get wealth. Here are three benefits that you will get by investing, as reported by Cermati.com.
1. Guaranteeing Your Old Age
If you have started investing from a young age, it is likely that your old age will be financially secure. You can enjoy your old age in peace without having to work hard or bother your children and grandchildren, because the money from your investment will automatically flow into your account. Or you can also turn your investment returns to starting a business. That way, the investment return money will not run out quickly, it will actually increase. Investment will secure your finance in old age. You don't have to worry about having trouble making ends meet.
2. Market Conditions will go Back to Normal
It's no secret, the Covid-19 pandemic has bad impact on Indonesia's economic sector, including the world of investment, both in the capital market, money market, and property. The movement is fluctuating, up and down so fast.
Even though it is full of uncertainty, usually market conditions will return to improvement, reversing direction to be positive after negative sentiment is gone. So, even though the current pandemic is still ongoing, don't hesitate to invest. In fact, this is the right moment to start, for example buying stocks, because current stock prices tend to be cheap. You just have to wait. Once the situation recovers, the stock price will definitely recover.
3. More Affordable Investment Capital
In the past, investment was often considered as a luxury thing, now this assumption is no longer valid. Anyone can invest now. You don't need to spend big up to tens or even hundreds of millions. Currently, investment capital can start from only Rp 10 thousand, such as online gold investment from well-known e-commerces.
Even so, you still have to be vigilant because nowadays there are more and more fraudulent investments. Before starting, first identify the investment instrument that you will choose. And make sure the company you choose is registered and supervised by the Financial Services Authority (OJK) and other institutions to avoid illegal or fraudulent investments.
