Gold and jewellery

The price of gold has been on the rise for a long time and as of 2011, gold apparently shows no signs of slowing down in regards to the investment market.

Company stocks and shares

The investment market when it comes to stocks and shares is currently very unstable and constantly changing due to the harsh effects that the recession is having all over the world. According to a recent news report from “Money Morning”, “BEE markets” or “Big Emerging Economy markets” and multinational stocks are some of the most valuable investments an individual can make in 2011. This basically defines stocks in international companies that are poised for success, not just companies in your own country.

Life and career investments

There are many ways this can be accomplished such as by taking steps to further your career by applying for roles higher up in your line of work, by returning to college for weekend or night courses or even by returning to full time education to pursue a career with better security and a higher salary. Other beneficial investments include online career portfolios such as freelance writing, photography and video and film making, all of which can culminate in a work-from-home career or a viable second income.

Investing can be very beneficial for those that are lucky enough to find the effective means of doing so in the current age of economical crisis. There are many smart investments for 2011 that could prove to benefit you in the future if you are willing to take a gamble, cut any losses and of course, have the money spare and utilize care and caution.
