Is there space in your monthly budget for a regular investment? There are a lot of benefits to the drip-feed approach.
It’s not long since you needed a large chunk of cash to start investing. That’s changed now, and Moneycube can arrange investments from €250 per month.
We’ve described some of the benefits of investing via a monthly direct debit.
It’s easier to be good with your money
Setting up a direct debit investment helps you keep good money habits. The amount you set is debited from your bank account by the fund provider each month, and invested for you in your chosen investment fund.
You can choose a regular date for the money to leave your account, and see the monthly buildup of your investment wealth.
Starting is easier
It often takes time to build up a lump sum, and inflation is eating into it while it stays on deposit. If you start investing with smaller amounts, your money gets working for you more quickly.
At Moneycube, we do this online.
You don’t need to time the market
Markets move all the time. When you add to your investment on a regular basis, you’re averaging out the cost at which you invest. (This is known as Euro-cost averaging in the business).
For you, the investor, this means you’re not taking a gamble on a particular period being a high or a low point in the market.
Start now, change later
Once your regular investment is in place, it’s easy to make changes. You can withdraw some funds, for example.
It’s also simple to increase your regular payment.
Or you can re-allocate your money into different investment funds. For example, you could lock in gains in higher-growth funds by moving some money into a fund with a lower risk/ reward profile.
Slow and steady wins the race – consider putting a direct debit investment plan in place today.
