Best Options for Investment for Maximum Returns
Agricultural Real Estate
Agricultural land is one of the safest bets in the world because people will always need food, and the need for food will keep growing till the population grows. It is the best bet against inflation and recession. It stood strong even in the 2008 and 2021 recessions. Billionaires flock to purchase farmlands before every recession to hedge their net worth.
On average, an agricultural land value grows ever to match the inflation and returns 4-8% per annum profits on top of it.
Real Estate is especially complicated in India and not to mention, expensive. That’s where REITs come into the picture. REIT stands for a real estate investment trust.
Millions of people pool their money and jointly invest in real estate of different types. This portfolio is managed by professionals and is scrutinized regularly by SEBI. REITs in India gave a 12% return last year.
The stock market is a market where you can buy ownership of a company. It has its ups and downs and every day is different. Some companies are on sale, some are doing better than ever. It is a complex market with billions of participants. People even pursue higher studies trying to understand which bet is more likely to return good money.
