But why should you invest in and how, that’s the question and below I will try to offer you a selection of common investment types.

How To Invest 100k In Australia

To put simply, you have a decent chance of getting a good return which drastically grows with more experience.

Investments not only help the economy develop but is also reasonably safe for those well informed and willing to learn more about the various platforms.

Where to Invest

In general, the best platforms often include some and exclude other features. For example I’m confident in the Forex capabilities of Fortrade but I’m more comfortable with the stock trading on Etoro.

An important thing to consider is the fact it’s not always the top search result which is the best platform for you – often it can take a while of research – going through scam websites and legitimate platforms which are simple below the level of quality we’ve come to expect.

Types Of Investments

Here I will go over the biggest and most welcoming types of investments available online.

1. Forex

As the name suggests Forex trading can be well described by the two parts of the name, “foreign” and “exchange”.

It’s a very simple system as a matter of fact. You buy one currency for another in hopes of it rising in value so you can buy another currency which will also rise in value and so on.

2. Binary Options

While not a specific as the on above. Binary Options is more of a trading mechanic compared by many to gambling – however as with most things, being well informed and using your head to spot the safe and the dangerous investments is the key thing to keep in mind.

It is well known that Binary Options are a high-risk high-reward system and to people who fail to spot the right signs may seem like a simple gamble.

When it comes to the mechanics of the system itself – they’re quite simple actually, you either invest in the fact that a stock will gain or lose value – it’s all or nothing.

3. Index Funds

An index fund – much like the above-mentioned Binary Options is a mechanic or method of trading rather than one specific area of treading – unlike Binary Options the Index Fund is often criticised for it’s lower earnings when compared to other places – this is mostly due to their safe approach to trading.

An Index Fund accepts many people to place their investment in a pool or mutual fund. This money is then put to use. Specifically the money is invested into different stocks and securities at rates which are directly linked and directly proportional to their rate of success.

So for example if Apple is doing better than Android – Apple stocks will receive a higher percentage of the fund than Android. That said technically every stock and security is bought in some capacity this is to avoid outliers and unpredictable outcomes.

4. Stocks (Manually)

If you want to trade stocks manually – as in see which stocks are going up and which ones are falling, that could potentially make you a lot of money.

There is a high risk as expected from the high rewards. In general it’s safe to say that inexperienced traders should stay away from manual stock trading. Stay away especially with a sum a large as 100k.

If you are willing to put up with the risk and are confident in your skills it might be the investment method for you.

5. Cryptocurrencies

I know a lot of people don’t trust cryptocurrencies. After all it’s hard to believe that thousands or tens of thousands of your hard-earned money is on a server that could break, be hacked or even be turned off by the creator.

It’s important to keep in mind that cryptocurrencies are a dime a dozen and while not all are legitimated most are.

You won’t see me investing 100k in doge-coin any time soon but Bitcoin, Etherium, Litecoin. These are all legitimate currencies that have a big enough market to earn you money. As with all investments, it’s easy to take a look at Bitcoin and immediately decide you’re not going to become a millionaire any time soon. Patience is key.

6. Real Estate

That’s the second oldest thing you probably heard being invested in – the first is gold.

But why should you invest in real estate – are you really going to make a lot of money from it?
It’s important to keep in mind the fact that real estate is no different from other forms of investment. The value of a building rises and falls as trends and businesses rise and fall.

A skilled trader can spot the trends and predict when the real estate will be worth the most. He invest in it when it’s worth the least.

Conclusion

How should you invest your 100k? I hope I answered that.

Yes I didn’t give you a definitive “Use x site” or “Use x method” answer. That’s because when it comes to trading and investments ever site is different and not every platforms will suite everyone.

That part is obvious due to the sheer number of trading sites out there.

Personally, Forex and Index funds are the things for me – they’re safe and profitable.
