Next form of Investment

POSTED BY Ankur ON October 12, 2011 12:39 am COMMENTS (3)

What could be the next form of investing. Lets say we are in the year 2050; stock market is at lowest point, realty market bubble has burst, crude and $$ and bonds are too scary. what would be the investing strategies to avoid falling in the trap at that time. Will it be Art or Antiques or something else. i know its a hypothetical qq but it just came in my mind and wanted opinion of everyone.

    You mean “It will be different that time”.

    I don’t really think so.

    Art and antiques are speculative with a very high component of commission for the agents and their agencies (e.g. Sotheby’s). I dont see any change in that.

    Its a good question to ponder . truely speaking you have not considered whole country .. Equity and reality and bonds are not the main investments which Indians do , bulk of hte people are still in FD and PPF only , may be 80-90% .

    So overall if you see , we can say “equity” and “commodities” is the real asset classes people will invest in . But if you only talk about urban class who already are into advanced things , I think Art, Business ideas of other people and crude etc will be the major things for investments .

      Thanks Manish.. do you have any plans to give a note abt Art & Antiques in near future. How to evaluate these stuffs. what factor derives their value. I know its a different ball game:) but would be really helpful to all the members of Jago Investor if we could get an insight to it.
      Thanks in advance.
