One of the most important conditions required to encourage investments is safety and reassurance before profitability. If investment is easy in some developed countries and away from any of the risks in an atmosphere of security, reassurance, good return and confidentiality. In other countries it may be subject to loss, confiscation or nationalization.
After going beyond the stage of saving in principle and forming an important nucleus, both in size and content, it is natural to invest what we have saved. What is important is not only saving, but investing, developing investment and changing the situation according to the development of circumstances, as follow-up is more important than starting and maintaining is more difficult than getting what is needed.
Now that we have capital or wealth, even relatively little, as a result of a rational savings policy, we have to maintain those savings and even direct them towards investment, and we should not leave our savings rigid in terms of their quality or value because money, in general, is going to melt and loses its purchasing power and its value is constantly declining.
So, we are supposed to move to the field of investment without stopping at the implementation of the savings program, and this is within the framework of proper planning so that we walk on two lines: the first (programmed savings) and the second (start investing).
First: Commercial Investment:
When we think of trade, we should first ask: Does man become a merchant or is he born a trader?
The truth is, whoever is born a trader has a huge advantage over those who want to learn, and strive to become a trader and therefore, the one who is born a trader will be proactive in achieving his projects and increase his profits and succeed constantly until failure can find solutions for him and turn him into success in some cases,
and so it was said in some popular adage: he is a trader son of a trader.
Second: Real Estate Investment:
Real estate activity is the thermometer of the economy in general and the better the real estate development the better. However, the almost guaranteed real estate sector has a very limited return, as it ranges from three to ten percent in the best probability. As for real estate housing, it is considered in developed countries as an excellent investment that protects capital from inflation, especially when the leasing and investment laws are fair, what one employs in real estate gives him an annual income of about 5%, and adds to his capital the same annual inflation rate if not more. Thus, we find that real estate is the best investment for several reasons: the most important of which is that it does not lose, and then it forms a frozen base for money that would have melted if it had not been employed.
After this quick overview of the core sectors of investment, it may seem necessary to summarize each sector in a phrase that gives a realistic idea of it and guides our choices, or determines our direction of direction and enables us to prefer. We say that:
• Trade = flexibility and money.
• Property = money and long breath.
If we feel that we can enter one or more of these sectors, and that we have its basic elements, let's start our studies, define our programs and set the basic lines of implementation. If the chosen sector is far from our potential, it is better for us to avoid adventure.
According to one of the old traders, if it is only a loss, then not to trade is to trade. This is especially true when markets are stagnant and in crises.
It is well known that capital is cowardly, that is, it escapes constantly and before any battle, and seeks reassurance in countries or banks, which have proven to be guaranteed in terms of the possibility of a refund at any time.
It is obvious that an investor improves his options when he makes his decision to go within a particular sector, or chooses a particular country or region and turns towards its markets or banks.
