What are cash options and are they right for you?

 

Cash solutions are low-risk investments that provide a return in the form of interest payments. They   can help preserve and protect your money from market fluctuations, while also generating a stable return. 

 

In exchange for a lower level of risk, cash solutions tend to offer a lower potential return compared to higher risk investments.

 

Investing in cash solutions doesn't mean putting your money in a savings account. There are many different cash options available – from bank deposit products that generate passive income to actively managed cash funds.

Get to know your risk appetite

Different investment strategies and timeframes have different levels of risk. As a general rule, the bigger the potential investment return, the higher the investment risk.
 
Understanding your tolerance for risk can help you feel more comfortable making investment decisions.
