Where to invest in 2017?

TOP ideas to invest this year


Shares give their holder the right to having a voice in the company’s matters and to get a proportional amount of the company’s profits in the form of dividends.

The main reason for investing in shares is the possibility of getting high returns.

You will also need a stockbroker to access international trading platforms, since only that intermediary will be able to buy and sell shares on the stock market.

This year, obtaining shares of companies involved in technologies, commodities, and consumer goods might be a smart choice.

Cons of investing in shares:

- If not choosing properly, you might lose a significant part of your investment

- Brokerage services can be expensive


Bonds holders loan money to an entity at an interest rate.

Unlike shares, they give no right to participate in the management of the company. They bring less income than shares, but risks are lower.

The fact is that, even if the company that issued bonds goes bankrupt, it is obliged to pay the debts to bondholders. So, after all, they get their profit.

The most popular industries in which to invest this year are telecommunications, oil and energy industries, and transport.

Cons of investing in bonds:

- Low income

- Bonds are better taken as a long-term investment


Investing in currencies may seem as the easiest choice. However, devaluations demonstrate that even the most stable currencies cannot guarantee financial protection. Why?

Exchange rates are influenced by different factors like the decisions of the Federal Reserve and other central banks, and political and economic changes such as rises in inflation and commodities prices.

This year, experts do not recommend buying Euros due to the unstable situation in the market. Some economists support the dollar and the British pound, which, in their opinion, should go stronger in 2017.

Cons of investing in currencies:

- High volatility

- Too many factors of influence


Gold’s value and good performance in the market is already widely known. But how does it behave as an investment tool?

Investors are very much interested in physical gold bars as an asset because it is not subject to extra taxes. This precious metal is independent of the fluctuations of shares and bonds prices. Moreover, its prices is constantly increasing as the value of currencies weakens.

The purchase of gold bars lacks the problems associated with other forms of investing in gold:

  • Coins depend much on their condition (like having scratches) apart from being more expensive. For example: a 1g-investment coin is more expensive than 1g-gold bar;
  • Gold jewelry is more expensive since it is made of alloys instead of pure gold;
  • Scrap gold can be sold at favorable prices, but it has no quality assurance, so selling it may be problematic; and
  • With gold options and futures, you technically do not possess physical gold.

Cons of investing in physical gold bars:

- No disadvantages
