I think its property investment, is good for long-term worth. Recently I have invested in London property
simply because their prices have continued to move up through the course of the year and it would not come down easily. Even though shares and property are both frequently lumped together as growth assets, each asset has distinctly different characteristics.
With shares, for instance, you can get away with only a modest outlay and you can buy and sell relatively quickly. Those are the pluses. But shares can be very volatile as was witnessed when the market slumped.
In contrast, property requires a larger outlay and buying and selling can take several months. But at least the market tends to be less volatile.
