It is not just amateur investors that have a difficult time finding investment opportunities that are dependable and profitable. Investment seekers, both experienced and affluent investors, from all over the world struggle to uncover investments that fall within their tolerance for risk, and help them meet their long-term investing goals. For most, they have a genuine concern about the poor performance of traditional investments, which includes fears that many stocks are overvalued and therefore a dangerous investment. The bond market is also troubling given their exposure to interest rate hikes and the devastating effects of inflation.
One solution for investors is to focus their attention on industries that have given a strong performance and have inspired investment in recent years. For example, Transportation and Manufacturing are two industries that have experienced notable growth since the global financial crisis crippled the world in 2008 and 2009. Within each well-performing industry, investors will discover sectors that offer them exposure to profitable marketplaces. In this case, investors who invest in containers gain exposure to the Transportation industry by way of the shipping sector.
Equally as important as the industry/sector you choose, is the geographic location of the investment offering. Using the example from above, both Transportation and Manufacturing are performing incredibly well in Asia, particularly in China, India, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Making an investment in these industries, and in these geographic areas, is likely to deliver the best, safest investment returns; given the long-term outlook for demand in the region.
Finding safe, profitable investments requires a steadfast commitment and a strong determination on the part of investors. Investment-seekers will not find them lying in plain view on the surface, for all to see. Deep investment research is the only sure way to identify the new investments, that are worthy of being added to your investing portfolio. This is the case, regardless of whether you are an amateur, experienced, or affluent investor.
