Profitability of investment channels in the past 5, 10, 15 and 21 years
According to Mr. Bui Minh Long, Head of Portfolio Management of DCDS Fund, Dragon Capital Vietnam, the best investment channel is the one that brings the most added value to society.
Mr. Long, precious metals such as gold and silver are a temporary stable investment channel in the short term in the face of world geopolitical fluctuations. However, in the long term, this investment channel is not effective because it does not create added value, this is often considered a risk-free channel rather than an investment.
“If you invest 10 years in gold long-term, you only get a high return in 1-2 years of the crisis, but you have wasted the remaining 8 years.”
With the savings channel, Mr. Minh said that this is a safe investment channel but has a low profitability rate due to low interest rates. Therefore, this expert believes that investors with high safety tastes instead of saving can partially switch to bond channels or bond investment funds to have higher profitability.
Assessing the real estate investment channel in Vietnam, Mr. Minh said that although it does not create added value, the population growth and urbanization process help property prices always increase in the long term. Therefore, the potential for price increase of Vietnam’s real estate market is still high.
Explaining the outstanding profitability of the stock channel, Dragon Capital’s experts said that stocks represent businesses – this is the class that creates the most added value for society.
“As we sit here still discussing major political issues, businesses out there continue to operate and look for different profitable business opportunities,” Minh shared.
Although they are attractive investment channels, according to Mr. Minh, securities and real estate are investment channels with higher risk and for professionals.
