Mark Bechard in his article in *Personal Finance advised us that
“Global property funds produced an impressive return of close to 30 percent to the end of December 2014.”
I am no financial whiz by any stretch of the imagination but I have been forced by circumstances to look around for something I can vaguely understand to invest in and that will provide some sensible returns. Property is always the one thing we all think we know best because we have bought the odd house or two in our time!
Any way bearing all that in mind I have chosen to invest in global property and it looks as if I am in good company as Bechard goes on to say that the “economic factors and the characteristics of the global listed property market make a compelling case for investing.”
For the average investor who is saving for the long term, the rule of thumb is an exposure to listed property of between 15 and 25 percent, and, for the sake of diversification, Hewett says he would tilt the bias towards global property.
I think I’ve finally got it right. Do you think there is money in property investment?
I am already making some money on my meagre investments and I will continue to add to my international portfolio. Everything in Bechard’s article just cemented my resolve that it is the right thing to be doing. Do you agree?
Go well till the next time
