Investing for beginners

Last time we shared more information about investing in real estate in our series "Investing for beginners". What is it and how can you make extra money with it?

You can read the whole article back here.

Today we focus on investing in funds for beginners. What is it, what types of funds are there and how do you make a profit investing in funds?

Investing in funds

In addition to investing in shares in bonds, this is one of the most popular and common forms of investment. Where you invest in shares in bonds in one company, you invest in several companies within an investment fund.

An investment fund is actually a kind of basket that can contain different types of shares and bonds.

As a result, there is automatically a greater spread of risk. The reason why investing in funds is so popular.

Types of investment funds

In short, we distinguish three types of investment funds: equity funds, bond funds and mixed funds.

Equity funds

As the word suggests, an equity fund consists of shares of listed companies. For example, you can choose to join a fund with only national companies or a fund in which only sustainable companies can be found. You can make that choice yourself.

Bond funds

Here, too, the word indicates exactly what it is. A collection of bonds from companies and governments. As we already mentioned in the paper on investing in bonds, this form of investment is seen as low risk. With a bond fund, these risks are spread even more widely.

Mix funds

A mixed fund can contain all kinds of forms of investment. The most logosche are, of course, shares and bonds. But a mixed fund can also be supplemented with real estate and currency.

The BOTS app and funds

Our investment focus for now is on crypto funds. And we do this in an automated way. With bots. In our BOTS app, you can choose a particular bot. This bot is developed by specialized developers and works through algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning. This eliminates the need to invest via a (digital) fund manager. So you don't pay for the costs they incur to be able to invest for you. In the long run, we do not only want to offer crypto investments, but also shares, bonds and investment funds.

The efficiency that a bot achieves, compared to a human being, is significantly higher. A bot does not sleep and can therefore react directly to changes in your cryptofound. Also, a bot has no emotion that partly determines how your investments are handled.

In this way, investing with higher returns becomes feasible for everyone. The best trading strategies were only available to the richest 3% in the world. Because of our bots now also for you. You can start within 2 minutes and from € 50,-.
