Source: PunchFour investments that keep your money secureYou know all the rules about getting ahead financially. You understand that you’re supposed to keep your expenses under control, stay out of debt, and save asmuch of your salary as you can. And you know that if you stick to these rules for long enough, you’ll eventually end up with a nice big balance in the bank. At thatpoint, you’re left with another question: What should you do with it? If you just let it keep piling up in the bank, your money stays safe and is available to you if youneed it – but at today’s interest rates, it won’t earn much. As the balance keeps climbing higher and the interest payments stay pitifully small, you’re likely towonder whether you’d be better off moving your funds to some other sort of investment – but if so, what? According to www.moneycrashers.com, the answerdepends partly on what you’re saving your money for. When you’re saving for retirement, stocks (or a mix of stocks and other investments) are your best betbecause they offer the best returns over the long run. However, for short-term savings, such as your emergency fund or personal savings, you need an account thatkeeps your money safe until you need it – while also bringing in a little interest to add to it.
