Diversity has often been said as the safest way to invest, but if you were to choose, would you rather invest in Property or Shares?
In terms of starting with either investment type, a small cash deposit can go a long way with Property, because banks and lenders value the reliability of the property market. In property, lenders can lend as much as 95% the value of property, as opposed to the 50% leverage for stocks. Stocks are not for the weak of heart, as values fluctuate by the second.
