Very good topic and also important for every person because investment are more useful and future planing
I don't really have something to say tho, but i will say if you are investing, you should only in what you know . Make sure you do proper research too.
A combination of both savings and investment is a valid and sustainable strategy. Money at bank through savings will also generate a return via interest. A balance may be important dependant on your personal circumstances
I feel there should be a balance. 50 percent investment and 50 percent savings. That way you can control the risk.
I had always preferred Savings to investment, I don't know why tho. Probably because I am scared of taking risks that come with investing.
As much as I will say I prefer savings, I have been through the whole process before, and after a while, I realized my income was stagnant. My portfolio wasn't improving at all. Investment is best for me .
