    Default how to invest 200k? how to protect it against inflation?

    Hi

    if you had 200k, what would you do with it? obviously, putting it in a bank and making 0.00000001% interest is not a good idea.

    is buying real estate and renting it out a good idea?
    where in USA? Which city?
    is it better to buy one rental for 200k or 2 rentals for 100k each?

    The obvious solution to preventing inflation specifically is to move your money out of a fiat currency.

    As for buying real estate, don't think it's just a cash machine that just spits out money every month, there's actual work running rental properties so don't expect free checks every month.

    I know to people outside the usa 200k might seem like a lot of money, but it's nothing here in the US.

    Buy an apartment somewhere outside the US and rent it and hope for the best. That's exactly what I plan on doing myself. Alternatively buy land and think about creating a resort, I know at least of a few countries that represent viable options and I'm dead serious.

    Just like in the IM business - likely a good idea to not stick all your eggs / assets in the same basket.

    Cash
    Gold
    Real Estate
    Loonnnnnng Term Stock plays to hold
    Annuities

    - cant begin to tell you how many different internet based businesses and income streams one could get going and get 200% ROI with approx. $25k ...

    Good luck!

    I don't know where the hell you bank, but getting that low of interest is rediculous. Even a basic savings account gets 3% returns.

    The best option is obviously gold, but it can go down in value as well. The best way to protect your money is to invest it in a safe mutual fund. If it were me, I would throw it in a 7% CDO for 10 years.

    Compound interest is what makes billionaires over time.

    Allow me to tell you a story about compound interest:

    The most skilled artisan in the sultanate presented the Sultan with a fabulously beautiful chessboard, intricately made with carved ivory, rare woods, and precious stones. It was so exquisite the Sultan offered the Artisan whatever price he named.

    The Artisan asked for one grain of rice. The Sultan was shocked. The Artisan continued – one grain of rice for the first square on the chessboard; one day later, two grains for the second square; two days later, four grains for the third, and the same simple doubling for the remainder of the 64 squares on the chessboard.

    Laughing, the Sultan agreed. “So I am to pay you a few grains of rice for all your wondrous work?” he asked. “It is sufficient for me, Your Majesty,” was the Artisan’s reply.

    The Sultan directed his Treasurer to award the Artisan one grain of rice that day, a second grain tomorrow, and additional grains daily according to the Artisan’s wish. The Artisan received his single grain gratefully, departed, and the Sultan forgot about him as he enjoyed playing against his courtiers (who always lost) with his chessboard.

    Dutifully, the Artisan showed up at the Treasurer’s office every day to receive his meager award of rice. On the 12th day, he received about two handfuls – 2,048 to be exact – and ignored the Treasurer’s sneer.

    The sneer was still there on the 16th day, when he received little more than a single pound of rice[1]. By the 21st day, the sneer was gone, replaced with a curious frown, for the Treasurer had to give the Artisan 35 pounds of rice – over a million grains. By the 24th day, the frown was replaced by worry – for the Artisan received 280 pounds of rice.

    Two days later – the 26th – the look was fear and panic, for the Artisan had come for over one thousand pounds of rice. The Treasurer had, days ago, switched from counting in grains to pounds – and now realized that soon the Artisan would be owed all the rice in the entire sultanate.

    “This cannot go on,” he told the Artisan. “Tomorrow it will be 2,000 pounds.” “2,200,” the Artisan corrected him. The Treasurer continued. “That means four days from now, the 30th day, it will be almost 18,000 pounds. This must stop.”

    “But by the 30th day,” the Artisan objected, “we haven’t even reached the second half of the chessboard.” Then he smiled. “That’s when it gets really interesting.”

    “What do you mean?” asked the now-sweating Treasurer.

    “Have you ever seen a bird flying low to the ground and getting a little bit higher and a little bit higher as he flies, then suddenly he starts to fly straight up? Well, my little rice bird has been flying low, and starting to get higher and higher so you’ll owe me 2,200 pounds tomorrow, 17,600 pounds in four days, and over 70,000 when we reach half the chessboard in six days – which will be over two billion grains of rice, by the way.

    “But, Mr. Treasurer, we’re just getting started. Two billion? That’s nothing. By the 41st day – 15 days from now – you’ll owe me 365,000 more pounds of rice than the 1,000 you owe me today, or over one trillion grains of rice.

    “By then, my little rice bird has only begun to fly straight up. By the 51st day – just 25 days from now – you and the Sultan will owe me 379 million pounds of rice, just for that month [that day, actually]! That’s over one quadrillion grains of rice.

    “By the time my little rice bird reaches the 64th square, she’ll be in far outer space – for you and the Sultan will owe me three quadrillion pounds of rice, or 9 quintillion grains – more rice than there has been or ever will be in the world. Not bad starting out with that one single grain you laughed at two months or so before.”

    O lord tons of investment opportunities out there, think about what people always need and then cater to a demographic in that niche.

    if I had 200k to invest, ill be a millionaire in 2 years time.

    I buy silver. I bleave it will outperform gold through the next 10 years.
    Like most investments there is no guarantee but the data I have looked at is convincing enough for me to invest and extra 3K a mouth in silver.

    If I had more money I would invest in real estate. Here in Texas if you know where to look you can find lots of nice 3 bedroom houses selling for around 50K-60K. I would buy as many as I could and rent them out.
    I have very little real estate experience so take my real estate advice with that in mind. I am no expert

    Don't worry about it then, just make an amount that seems a lot in your country then think about investment. As of right now it's not a lot to even think about it based on your post.

    Invest small amounts in psychology and sales copy (A+++ converting writers and strategists), seo, paid traffic, and content writers. You can easily make back your money and then some. Just don't go ahead of yourself with eCommerce as that requires branding and a different type of advertising method. Hell, with some of the BSTS around here (deep research and a sharp mind required) you can easily make back your money monthly just derping around with Adsense. With 200k you can fuck YouTube's day up and become a big pro Viral YouTube SuperStar or get even more creative.

    Pssh, it doesn't even take $200k to make money, it takes $200k to make you even more money. Right now, I suggest you save it, think on it, and then come back to it later.
    Thinking up some new things to bank on!

    You wouldn't even get more than one percent on a 5 year CD. He must be banking circa 1992.

    I don't know what is happening lately but lately we really have had some moronic threads started, this is one of them.

    I am sick of BHW turning into this shit.

    In no way am I an expert in investing but from the books and interviews i've read/seen it seems like the general rules are to have most of your net worth generating yield monthly/yearly. If you buy stock worth 10$/share you are hoping that someday there will be someone buying it at 10$+, where as if you generate yield you don't need to hope for the stock to be 10$+/share one day.

    Also as someone mentored, never have all your eggs in one basked. This also means not putting more than XX% in one industry. In the youtube video bellow, Kevin O'Leary suggests no more than 25% in industry. A good interview btw, worth the time. Some great ideas on government too.

    If you wanna go the real estate road you can actually get "extras" by buying in specific countries. For example, if you buy any property (there is a minimum money limit) here in Latvia you get some kind of pass to be able to travel and work in the whole european union. Basically EU citizenship.

    try having 200k in third world countries, maybe you'll be one of the richest persons in the country. but if in the US, try investing it in affiliate products maybe so that it will get somewhere. but 200k is also a big money, you just have to think in which way you would spend it. spend it right.

    The best option is obviously gold, but it can go down in value as well. The best way to protect your money is to invest it in a safe mutual fund. If it were me, I would throw it in a 7% CDO for 10 years.

    Compound interest is what makes billionaires over time.

    Allow me to tell you a story about compound interest:
    And day later he got tortured to death, lost everything and sultan hired someone other with less ridicilous do the work. If things were that easy we all would own a god damn galaxy

    I would invest some of the money for offline business on something that is not yet so popular is relatively cheap to start and maintain with somewhat good expansion possibilities.

    Visit the fast lane forum, read the book by MJ Demarco.


    I would not even consider putting the money in a savings account unless I had a couple of millions. Like "Cnotey" story suggested, you won't see any real results from compounding until you reach day XX (now if that was in money it would be the equivalent of Mil.)... You need to have a couple of millions (close to 5mil+) to really get most out of compounding.

    Learn what makes a business successful research the market, find a niche, fill a need and set up a proper business. Sell the business for a couple of millions, then do it again (and leave your millions making you money in a fixed rate account).

    This one pays 4.27% after 12 months!

    (UK gov. guarantees / protects up to 500k)

    As other said, diversify your income

    1) Gold
    2) Real Estate
    3) Online web properties

    These are enough to get passive income forever. Just be smart and invest part by part in each and see how much gains you get. I am not sure about your country but in my country real estate and gold is the no 1 way get to riches. Hell, I bought a land and its bringing me passive $5k a year and it will increase exponentially.
    Invest in Gold as its the most evergreen kind of investment
    Invest in content and make blogs. Your returns can be 200% if you know how to do it. Just outsource it.

    And BTW my bank does pay 4% interest on savings account and some 9% for FD. Its not the same in all countries i feel maybe that's why some are shocked to hear about the interest rate.

    If you are looking to purely hedge against inflation, gold is an adequate choice. The wise choice would be to pay someone who knows what he/she is doing to manage your money for you, since you're asking for investment advice on a blackhat forum.

    If i were you, I would do rental properties. (this will give you a little more then inflation, and atm property prices are low.)

    Best way would be to put it all into one place, but make sure the place has more then one unit.

    Do some research on an area,
    (one of the best ways to do this is to make sure they have a a couple big chain restaurants. These big chains do a lot of research before moving into an area, if there is a big chain there, and they are busy, its a good place to get a rental property.)

    Or...
    What I would do is invest it into a website, and hope to god that it pays out and makees me $1mill in a year

    This is true. I haven't bought a CDO in nearly 20 years. Are rates down that much?

    If so I stand corrected.

    A quick google search turned this up:

    60 Month Jumbo $ 200,000 min. FDIC Insured. (Please call for bank)

    Deposit Term APR APY If held to Maturity
    $ 200,000 60 Month 3.05% 3.10% $ 231,000

    Actually, that's exactly what Mark Cuban advocates you do. I watched a YouTube interview on what appeared to be a local business show, and Cuban makes the statement that an investor should park his money in order to be able to move it quickly into investment opportunities. If I can find the interview, I'll post it here.

    If i have $200k, i don't look to generate huge sum of money, $200k is enough money Imao! I won't take any risk of investing it to some other things..

    I'll be the one who was in the image below, if i got $200k .. No investments, enjoy with the money till it ends




    Cheers!

    It depends where you live. For example where I live (western Europe) for 200k dollar I can not even find a nice new apartment. So I would definately invest it partially into forex and the rest into a business so it can generate more money.

    Thread title and OP are missleading.

    Is this a purely theoretical question? If so then this thread is pointless.

    I might aswell make another thread "Won the lottery, what to do?" Then open with... Hey guys, what would you do if you won the lottery? What would you spend it on.
