Do you have some money set aside and you do not know what you can do with it? Do you have it in your bank account and it is just there accruing little to no interest? Read this article to the end. In this article, I will be guiding you on different online investment platforms in Nigeria you can invest your money into that will yield high interest.
It is important to note that these online investment platforms will not make you a millionaire especially if you are investing little or small money. However, it will yield you good interest depending on the amount of money invested at the beginning.
It is also important to note that not all the online investment platforms that people (your family and friends) introduce to you are legit. Many of these online investment or digital banks are not licensed and registered under the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and other regulatory bodies in Nigeria.
Many of these unregistered online investment platforms are built by unscrupulous people who want to make quick money thereby swindling you of your hard-earned money so you have to be careful and be on the lookout.
With the way to make cool money this year, it will be bad to lose all your money at a go to these people. Lastly, before we go fully into these investment platforms you need to know that despite many of these online investment platforms are legit it does still guarantee that you cannot lose your money.
With this, I will strongly advise that you only invest the money you can only afford to lose. Do not invest your life savings. For example, if the money in your account is #500,000 you can invest #100,000 or #200,000 into these online investment platforms to yield interest at the end of the month or year.
As for the interest you can get on the money you have invested into these platforms I will say it depends on many things. These interests are subject to CBN’s regulations and other regulatory bodies. Also, the current rate of inflation and proposed rate in the nearest future, charges of the online investment platforms, and more. However, there are some platforms that give you more interest in the money invested than others.
