Ways to save and invest $500 in the second half of 2022 - Raiz Invest

2022 may be halfway through, but there’s plenty of time left to get your investments into shape!

Here are some ideas which could help get you there.


Switch on automatic Round-Ups

It seems easy enough, but by just turning on round-ups, this can help you invest effortlessly in the background of life.  Every time you spend using an account linked to Raiz, you will be investing.

In 2021, the average Raiz user invested almost $50 per month using the automatic round-ups feature, which adds up to almost $300 in six months!


Setup a recurring investment

With recurring investments you can you can invest automatically and effortlessly; while choosing exactly:

  • How much you want to invest
  • How often you are investing, whether it’s daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly

This could put you in control of reaching your investment target for the second half of 2022. If you are aiming for the $500 mark invested in the second half of 2022, investing $20 a week will get you there with a week to spare!


Have some fun using the Raiz investing gameboard

Why not have some fun while investing? Pick a weekly amount that you wish to invest and tick it off the gameboard. This takes a bit more dedication and effort than using the recurring or round-up features, but make it a bit more fun and engaging. And you can even treat yourself to one rest week 😀

Once you have marked off all the amounts, guess what? You have hit $500 invested for the second half of 2022!

*Remember if you invest $500 for the second half of the year, you may not have a $500 at the end of the year. This is because market values go up and down and these fluctuations affect your final balance at the end of the year.

Important Information

If you have read all or any part of our email, website, or communication then you need to know that this is factual information and general advice only. This means it does not consider any person’s particular financial objectives, financial situation, or financial needs. If you are an investor, you should consult a licensed adviser before acting on any information to fully understand the benefits and risk associated with the product. This is your call but that is what you should do.

You may be surprised to learn that RAIZ Invest Australia Limited (ABN 26 604 402 815) (Raiz), an authorised representative AFSL 434776 prepared this information.

We are not allowed, and have not prepared this information to offer financial product advice or a recommendation in relation to any investments or securities. If we did give you personal advice, which we did not, then the use of the Raiz App would be a lot more expensive than the current pricing – sorry but true. You therefore should not rely on this information to make investment decisions, because it was not about you for once, and unfortunately, we cannot advise you on who or what you can rely on – again sorry.

A Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for Raiz Invest and/or Raiz Invest Super is available on the Raiz Invest website and App. A person must read and consider the PDS before deciding whether, or not, to acquire and/or continue to hold interests in the financial product. We know and ASIC research shows that you probably won’t, but we want you to, and we encourage you to read the PDS so you know exactly what the product does, its risks and costs. If you don’t read the PDS, it’s a bit like flying blind. Probably not a good idea.

The risks and fees for investing are fully set out in the PDS and include the risks that would ordinarily apply to investing. You should note, as illustrated by the global financial crisis of 2008, that sometimes  not even professionals in the financial services sector understand the ordinary risks of investing – because by their nature many risks are unknown – but you still need to give it a go and try to understand the risks set out in the PDS.

Any returns shown or implied are not forecasts and are not reliable guides or predictors of future performance. Those of you who cannot afford financial advice may be considering ignoring this statement, but please don’t, it is so true.

Under no circumstance is the information to be used by, or presented to, a person for the purposes of deciding about investing in Raiz Invest or Raiz Invest Super.

This information may be based on assumptions or market conditions which change without notice and have not been independently verified. Basically, this says nothing stays the same for long in financial markets (or even in life for that matter) and we are sorry. We try, but we can’t promise that the information is accurate, or stays accurate.

Any opinions or information expressed are subject to change without notice; that’s just the way we roll.
