Where do billionaires invest besides the stock market? You might wonder

We're all here to invest. And while our focus is mainly on the stock markets, it's worth remembering from time to time that there are other alternatives. For many of you, they might even be significantly more interesting than securities!

The road to successful investing doesn't always have to be all grey and bland

Diversification is the key. And the most successful ones are aware of it too. Holding a lot of wealth in just one thing is extremely risky, so it is advisable to spread that risk. But what are the options?

I would divide these investments into two groups - hobby and classic.


This includes what you understand and can properly evaluate. For some it may be art, for others wine, for others cars or shoes. It's up to each individual. Of course, you can find a person who can advise you on choosing an investment car that you don't understand, but it still won't be the right thing to do, because it involves a lot of other things that you can appreciate and handle more like a fan.

But if you feel like a fish out of water in the industry, it can be an ideal choice, where you might be able to appreciate your money more than in the stock market.


And then there are investments that are somehow more "investor".

1. Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents are a common place where billionaires keep some of their money. Although cash isn't often thought of as an investment, it's a liquid asset, which means you can use it in a variety of ways as needed or desired. In the event of a crisis, having cash on hand allows you to react flexibly. However, at the current rate of inflation, cash is less important. Inflation causes the value of cash to fall, so having too much of it on hand in times of inflation can mean you lose out significantly.

2. Foreign currencies

Holding foreign currencies offers the opportunity to capitalise on fluctuations in the value of different currencies. It's simply a form of diversification: instead of having all your assets denominated in one currency, you spread some of your wealth across assets denominated in other currencies. Especially in the wild political situation we are currently witnessing, this can come in handy.

3. Commodities

For example, in a scenario where inflation is causing trouble for the rest of the market, investing in commodities that are rising in price can make a lot of sense. People and economies depend on commodities and inflation increases their value.

4. Real Estate

Warren Buffett may hate them, but they just can't be missed here. One of the most common ways to invest in real estate without having to worry about its constant upkeep is to put your money in real estate investment trusts (REITs). This can provide you with a high return while someone else manages the investment and management of the physical real estate. For the more adventurous, then there's investing in physical real estate and all the hassles that come with it.

5. Venture capital

While venture capital is very similar to traditional securities, it differs in one key way. The level of risk and potential. They are attractive to high net worth individuals who can afford large investments and higher risk. Such people are sometimes categorized as sophisticated investors or accredited investors.


6. Cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin et al. They are volatile, scary, and for many, elusive. The truth is that digital currencies are gaining legitimacy and value. Cryptocurrencies - and the blockchain on which they are built - are a revolutionary technology that could change many industries. And more and more people are beginning to understand this.

Part of the appeal of cryptocurrencies is that they allow for the safe storage of value. Thanks to cryptography, money cannot be taxed, stolen or confiscated. They are also apolitical and not subject to government oversight. Moreover, they can be used globally without fear.

Cryptocurrencies are, of course, still unpredictable and have yet to become widespread. This is still a big hurdle for many people. And the fact that they simply "can't be touched".
