To give your money the best chance of growth over the long-term, you should invest it. And for most people, their aim is to increase their wealth for retirement.

So what rate should you aim to grow your investments at over the years? And what are you options?

Read on to find out…

Your goals for investing for the long-term

By investing for the long-term, you should aim for an annual return of between 10% and 15%. Put enough money to work, and this can grow into a substantial amount of money by the time you reach retirement.

Successful investing isn’t just about achieving a good rate of growth. It’s about putting enough money to work too.

Take a long-term view with your investments on the stock market and pick your investments carefully.

Where to invest your money

You have a number of options. But it’s important to hold a diversified portfolio.

Investing in specific shares
You could decide to pick different shares to invest in.

For example, look at large dividend paying giants on the JSE. Or you could opt for medium-sized growth companies.

Investing in funds
You could opt for unit trust funds or exchange traded funds that focus on particular sectors of the JSE. This avoids the need for you to pick particular shares and your returns should mirror the market average.

Investing in property
You can list in funds and shares that focus on property. Many of these tend to pay decent dividends too.

Investing in bonds
You could put some of your cash into bonds. These may not give you as high a return as investing on the stock market, but they’re more reliable. And also provide an income.

To help grow your investments, it’s important to reinvest dividends whenever you can.

So there you have it. How to grow your wealth by investing your money.
