Stocks in this category will be the riskiest investment to make for one who has a huge capital, but at the same time can give very return of investments if the deal goes well.
There are so many good companies to put money into and buy shares from them and watch it grow into something huge.
So many people lost money in 2008 when the stock market melted, but then, the stock market has since recovered, albeit slowly and discerning investors are making money. As at towards the ending of 2017, the broad market index, the NSE All-Share Index was up about 30%. Certain stocks have returned as much as 60%. The truth is that, if carefully done, investing in equities can offer an incredible return. Return on equity investment is not only in terms of capital appreciation but it also comes in dividend and script issues or bonuses.
It has also been shown that, perhaps, the only investment that beats equities over a period of time is real estate, But then in Real estate investment, you will need high capital to invest into it.
So, you don’t need as much capital when compared to real estate to invest in stocks and most importantly, stocks are more liquid and come very handy in times of emergency.
The secret to cashing out big in Stocks Investment is to
- Develop your own winning system,
- Do not speculate before investing,

Treasury bills remain the best investment opportunity as it’s the most secure form of investment in Nigeria because it has very little to zero risks of losing your hard-earned money and backed by the government.
The election is coming and the government is looking for money to use in running the election. If you understand this, you’ll know banks are one of the places the government will go to for money and eventually the price of bid on treasury bills will definitely go up. Investing over 5 million naira into treasury bills for a period of 91 days for 14% interest and reinvesting again after 91 days, 182 days and 364 days respectively is a good way to make huge profits.
There is also a secondary market for this security existing in the money market. The money market comprises of the banks and other financial institutions dealing in short-term instruments. Please consider reading the full article on How treasury bills work and how to invest in treasury bills.
Buy Properties, Invest into Real Estates
Buying properties in Nigeria have been one of the surest investment one can make especially for a country like Nigeria that is developing. But one thing is certain about investing in properties in Nigeria, you have to take into proper account the city/town which the property is located. Profit returns from places like Abuja and Lagos can never be compared to profit margins to place like Enugu and Benin. If you need quick withdrawal from property investment, then, consider major cities like Lagos, Port Harcourt, and Abuja, but if you are looking for a long-term investment on a property, then, consider places like Onitsha, Enugu, Ogun, Delta. Just make proper research before diving into anything. They all follow the principle of invest money to make money.
You can make a lot of money by investing in real estates. If you say it requires huge capital to do in the property market, then you are right.
Another secret to getting your way well wrapped in real estate investments if you don’t have much capital is to buy lands in local areas that have high chances of developing. There are places in Nigeria that you can buy a piece/plot of land for as low as 500,000 Naira.
After buying the land, hold onto it for a while and when development starts coming in, use the piece of land for renting services.
If you have the resources you can invest in already developed properties like houses, apartment houses, and hostels. Such properties are managed by real estates development companies and there as so many that allows investors to pay in installments or even arrange mortgage financing with time.
This may sound odd but I tell you there is so much money to be made in investing into Agriculture if you go big into it. The Agricultural sector is raising a new set of millionaires from farming in Nigeria and the trend will continue as government at all levels continue to drive agriculture as a way of diversifying the economy.
Apart from this, Agriculture in Africa will continue to be viable including in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Kenya, United States, Uk and other non-African countries because of its huge population and the emerging of industries that require input from the agricultural sector.
Subsectors that are open to investment include produce farming such as
- Pineapple, etc;
livestock production such as poultry, pig and snail as well as fish farming will continue to thrive.
If you don’t like farming but want the money that comes from it, you may adopt the indirect model by investing in organizations that have the expertise and are engaged in large-scale farming. These companies use your money to carry out all the processes and pay you returns on your investment periodically and at the end on maturity, you also have the option of exiting with your investment capital or reinvesting for the next farming round.
