A reader ask; how to invest 50000 dollars if I am 35 years old and what is the future value of my 50k investment after 10 years and 15 years? A reader from Vancouver Canada wants to know the exact process of investing 50,000 dollars.
I believe that Jimmy (the sender) is very serious in preparing his retirement. If Jimmy has 50,000 dollars investment capital and he is 35 years old, the best things to do first are as follows;
- Before you invest pay off your debts or at least lessen your debts.
- Knowing Jimmy’s current financial situation can help him analyze his investment objectives.
- Jimmy should invest 50,000 dollars according to his age, needs, goals and risk tolerance.
Investing 50000 dollars is already a serious money. Having said that, we should carefully invest 50k in an investment that can give us sure return.
However, it is hard to find an investment that can give us sure return. Because it is a fact that if we invest in stocks, mutual funds, bonds, real estate, forex, business or even investment in the bank, there are “guaranteed returns” to any types of investments.
Last month I calculated the possible future value of 50,000 one time investment. The result is amazing because of compound interest. A 35 year old man can take advantage of long-term investing because he is still young. If he decided to pull out his investment at 60, at least he invests his money within 25 years; a good investment horizon.
