Amy: Property crowdfunding, stocks or shares? How do they compare in the modern investing landscape?
Ben: I can't really compare them because they're so different and as much as a boring statement as this is going to be because I can't really be seen to recommend any particular type of investment. It goes back to what I was saying originally which is, you've got to figure out what's right for you by doing your own research.
Amy: I suppose there's a question which is, what's right for me is not what's right for you. So, it's quite open-ended.
Ben: Absolutely. I'll give you an example. On social media sites at the moment, I am bombarded with cryptocurrency investing, right? And I didn't understand it but I invested in it a while back and forgot about it and now it's exploded.
I took a massive risk by doing something that could be considered to be quite stupid a long time ago and it paid off.
That's a huge risk but then I'm quite a risky person. As long as I understand something, I don't mind giving something a go, as long as I believe that there could be a pay-out at the end of it.
It's the same with all stocks, all shares, all property. There are certain areas I wouldn't want to invest in, there are certain property types I wouldn't want to invest in. The same with stocks, the same with shares.
I think that a good investor, or someone who is looking to become a good investor, will become very aware, very quickly, that the research that you do is paramount to the amount of money that you invest because then, at least, you are then prepared to lose that amount, based on the research that you have done but also, prepared to take gain as well.
Because it doesn't work all the time. And as long as, at the end of the year, you can balance the books and you know that you have done the right thing, collectively, then you are definitely heading in the right direction.
