There are some excellent investment opportunities in Dubai available for the keen investor. There are lots of investment companies in the UAE to become involved with. However, there are plenty of other great investment possibilities to consider too. In this article, we are going to look at 5 of the best investment opportunities in the UAE.
More and more investors are looking to REITs (real estate investment trust) as their chosen form of Dubai property investment. This is particularly the case when considering the action being taken in Dubai. REITs offer investors a pathway into a closed-ended publicly traded company that can provide tax-efficient investment exposure to property assets.
Essentially with mutual funds, you would be investing in an instrument that is a pool of investments managed by a professional fund manager. Once you have selected a mutual fund (you do not have to worry about the day to day movement of the market once invested, the fund manager of the fund takes care of that side of things) you could well find this a stress free option that is convenient and allows you to invest passively.
These Exchange Traded Funds are investment funds listed on a stock exchange which are open-ended, they have a low cost and are easier to trade. It is for these reasons that they have seen an increase in popularity in recent years. To quote from Wikipedia ‘An exchange-traded fund is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges, much like stocks. An ETF holds assets such as stocks, commodities, or bonds and generally operates with an arbitrage mechanism designed to keep it trading close to its net asset value, although deviations can occasionally occur.’
Invest in an emergency fund
Although hopefully all of your planned investment opportunities in UAE will go off without a hitch, in life this sadly cannot be 100% guaranteed. What you can do is sort yourself out with a fall back package if anything does go wrong. Whenever you can, add some money into a fund which will form your emergency fund, so that you will not struggle financially should anything go wrong. Of course, the more you can put away in this fund, the better protection you are giving yourself.
Start an online business
Just like most areas of the world, there is money to be made, and good opportunities for profit if you invest in your own business ideas and begin an online business. With the right idea, price, product and execution you could run a website that makes you money and forms a company that turns a profit. But you must know that the UAE has different rules when it comes to starting an online business and you cannot just begin set up as easily as you can in other countries. For example, if you wanted to operate an online business in Dubai you will need to apply for a license to do so. Make sure you research this carefully before taking any steps to begin the business.
