In one of our previous blogpost we already discussed several different ways to invest your money. One possibility is investing in raw materials. This way of investing has become more popular in recent years. But what does this way of investing actually entail?
Investing in in raw materials requires you to buy the raw materials to later sell them with a profit. There are two possibilities: you can choose to invest in physical commodities or in futures with raw materials as underlying asset. The resources you have invested in will not be sent to your home, but are represented by a proof of value. The owner of the resources is indicated on the proof as well. When investing in gold, silver or diamonds it is possible to have your resources in your possession. These are usually kept in a vault.
