In a nutshell, investing is risky. You may not get back what you put in, or indeed anything at all, and not investments are legal or even advised. However, if you want to invest, you need to make sure you have done your research first before putting down any money, so you are happy with the risks associated with investing in your chosen method.

So what are great options for investing that don’t involve gambling on the stock market?

Vintage Cars

Most specifically, JDM (Japanese Domestic Motors). If you are a fan of the Fast and Furious movie franchise and dream of pulling off some of Paul Walker’s signatures, moving or driving the exact Nissan Skyline model from Gran Tourismo, then finding a good quality, low mileage JDM import can be a great investment opportunity. JDM cars are legal in the US once they become over 25 years old, and they make a great investment for any drag racing fan.

Watches

Classic Cartier, Rolex, and Omega watches are some of the high-quality brands that hold their value and, in some cases, increase depending n the condition and the model. Highly sought-after designs and designers are great investment pieces and can enhance a collection or an investment portfolio.

The best watches to invest in for 2021 include;

  • Rolex Daytona Platinum Ice Blue Arabic Dial
  • Rolex Day-Date 40 60th Anniversary 18ct White Gold Olive Green Dial
  • Longines Vintage Chronograph, Circa 1940-the 1950s
  • Custom Diamond Set Patek Philippe Nautilus Rose Gold Watch
  • Omega Speedmaster “First Omega in Space”

Commodities

Agricultural products, oil, natural gas, precious and industrial metals, and other natural resources are examples of commodities. Commodities are considered an inflation hedge since they are not affected by public equity markets. Furthermore, the value of commodities grows and falls under supply and demand—greater demand for commodities leads to higher prices and, as a result, higher profits for investors.

Real Estate Crowdfunding

Another way to diversify your real estate investment portfolio is to use a crowdfunding platform. These choices have grown in popularity over the years and allow you to invest in real estate without the inconvenience of owning or maintaining the property. To gain access to some platforms, you must be an accredited investor, while others do not. However, there are other solutions to consider.

Investments value can differ from platform to platform, with some offering investments from as little as $10. it is a great way to build up your portfolio without funding the cost of purchasing real estate yourself.

Gold

Investing in gold has always been a great option. Gold usually holds its value and is often seen as a good asset to invest in. If you’re a modest investor or a first-timer, it’s best to stick to direct gold investment strategies. This usually entails purchasing gold bullion in the shape of coins, bars, or other real gold forms. A gold allocation of 5% to 10% is considered good for an individual’s portfolio. When it comes to investing in gold, it’s also critical to understand the elements that influence gold prices.
