One of the core services offered by Taskwetu is project consultancy which involves quite a number of activities- one of them being researching on investment opportunities. We recently got a request by one of our clients on how to go about investing since he had no clue where to start, This compelled us to do a small survey to find out how many people really know the fundamentals of investing. Everyone is looking for the best investment option in the country with the best returns but most do not have an idea of where to start. Where to put your money is a critical decision for investors everywhere

Surprisingly, the media plays a big role in the lack of knowledge on the nitty grittys behind the principles of investing  The media tends to create a lot of hype about hot opportunities of where to invest (but keep in mind this is their job, to create awareness about existing opportunities), be sure you have given it careful thought and done thorough research on it before you end up losing out quite a bit of your savings.

For those who are completely clueless about investments and are probably a little embarrassed to ask, the Taskwetu Team has taken the liberty to give you a few general guidelines that should help you make a wise decision:

  • Educate yourself about stocks and investing.You need to have at least basic knowledge about this opportunity you’re entering, so you can create realistic expectations, goals and budget. It is crucial to know the difference between investments and savings. They are not one and the same!
  • Have Capital and Budget

Budgeting may feel constricting. But the truth is it’s a relieving endeavor if you have goals in place and keep an open mind. After all, the ultimate goal of budgeting is to have enough cash flow for your needs, wants and investments.

  • Set out clear objectives

Know why you want to invest and what you hope to achieve through the investment. Make SMART Goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time specific). This really isn’t rocket science. Think of it this way. “I want to buy a house” Knowing this is simply not enough. You need to identify a location, resources required, Size of the house, time needed to build the house e.t.c

  • Know the risks & volatility involved and the relationship between risks & benefits

.Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment. There is a relationship between risk and return. The greater the amount of risk that an investor is willing to take on, the greater the potential return. The reason for this is that investors need to be compensated for taking on additional risk.

You may be wondering why we wrote this article, well it’s simple, we aim to create awareness more so for the Kenyans living in the diaspora as well as our locals to enable them to make SMART investment opportunities back at home and avoid losing there life savings.
