The discussion here on investment is not only related to money but also time. We’ve all been investing money since we were a child. Remember when you bought a piggy bank to save your money to buy chocolates or gadgets? Well that was a step to invest for personal interest.
But investing for gaining profit. Have we done that? Depends upon people. I’ve seen a lot of cases where people say that they’ve invested their money by depositing it to a bank. That actually comes under your savings.
So let’s first get ourselves clear the difference in saving and investment.
Difference between saving and investment
Coming directly to the point:
- Saving is keeping/depositing the money you don’t spend now. It’s the money you want to be able to access quickly, with little or no risk, and with the least amount of taxes when you desire.
- Investing is buying assets such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds or real estate with the expectation that it will generate profit for you in the future. Investments usually focuses on achieving long-term goals.
