Most of us know not to put all our eggs in one basket. It’s a sure way of losing the lot. And, the same can be said for our money. If you put it all in one nest egg, one unfortunate incident can be catastrophic. Hence why we often hoard our savings in different places. The more nest eggs you have, the less chance there is of losing a hefty sum.
That said, even scattering your money won’t be enough to save you if you put it in the wrong places. There are a lot of nest eggs with substantial holes in them. Invest in a few of them, and you could still lose everything. To make sure you don’t lose everything, we’re going to look at how you can patch the holes in a few of those options.
The right insurance policy
One area many of us hoard money is insurance. When it comes to something like your home and your life, you can be sure this will save your finances in the long run. At least, it will if you get the right policy. In truth, 52% say they don’t understand their insurance coverage, which means that many of us don’t have the policies we need. As such, you’ll pay out for insurance, as well as damage your policy doesn’t cover. But, this nest doesn’t need a hole. If you do your research and ensure your policy includes everything you need, your efforts here won’t go to waste. Getting the right home insurance policy will protect your against disasters, and even pay for hotel stays if your home is out of action. And, that doesn’t mean spending full whack, either. By taking all the possible precautions, your monthly premium can remain low.
A solid investment
When it comes to nest eggs, we often hear about unsteady investments, such as those on the stock market. These do stand to earn us large amounts. But, they can also leave us with nothing if things go wrong. Instead of taking these risks, you should look into more solid investment choices. Admittedly, no investment is foolproof. But, at least something like property acquisition provides you with a physical object. Even if you struggle to make your money back on the house, you can at least turn to renting to make up what you’ve lost.
A private savings account
To be honest, it doesn’t get much better for safeguarding your savings than a private savings account. Whatever way you look at it, this is a no-hole nest from the off. Admittedly, you won’t make substantial money as you could with the other options discussed. But, a high-interest choice could earn you a little. You also don’t have to gamble here. This is as simple as placing money in your account and resting easy that it’s safe and secure. By opening an account which doesn’t have easy access, you can even save your money from yourself. One thing’s for sure; it won’t go anywhere.
