Gold

Experts say at least 5% of your investments should be in gold. If you have a hefty savings, you should seriously consider investing - let your money make you money - but if you are worried about losing it, you should know that gold is considered a "safe" investment, as it basically always appreciates in value. Even if only slightly, consider it this way: It is almost guaranteed that your gold will return at least as much as your savings account! Now, there are no guarantees in life and I am not a financial expert, but this is a reasonable claim, given gold's performance in the past.

You can buy gold bullion or gold coins, and even have it shipped directly to your storage facility (bank). Again, it is not a high-risk investment, so if you are looking to make a lot of money fast, gold probably should not be on your list, but if you want your money to work for you, follow the link above to learn more!
