Digital nomads: 4 investment solutions

Digital nomads: 4 investment solutions


Discover 4 investment solutions designed for digital nomads, their benefits and limitations, and how to choose them.


Statistics suggest that there are already 35 million digital nomads worldwide, but the actual number is likely to be much higher. Their annual contribution to the global economy is estimated at US$787 billion, and data suggests that this figure is rising. With this in mind, it makes sense that there are investment solutions out there that meet your specific needs, that combine flexibility and ease of access, and that can be managed remotely, without geographical restrictions or complicated bureaucracy. Here are 4 solutions to consider.


1. Real Estate Funds

Real estate funds are a good investment option for digital nomads. In this case, a number of investors contribute capital to finance property projects such as the development, purchase or refurbishment of a property. They are therefore a gateway into the property market without the need for a significant amount of capital or direct property management. You can spread your investment across a number of properties, including residential, commercial or industrial properties, thereby reducing the risk associated with a single investment.

Real estate funds can be managed online, making them a convenient option for digital nomads. Investors can research and select property projects online, track projects and receive updates on the performance of their investments. It can be a good option due to their accessibility, flexibility and the potential for higher returns when compared to more traditional forms of investments. As returns tend to be lower than other options, you should be prepared to invest for the long term.



2. Cryptocurrencies

Investing in cryptocurrencies can be attractive to digital nomads, because of their digital and global nature. Even after the recent shocks to the global economy – Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), Signature Bank in the US and, in Europe, Switzerland’s second largest bank Credit Suisse –bitcoin appreciated by around 25% in about a week, from 9 to 15 March, showing resilience in the midst of a negative backdrop in the European banking sector.

Banco Carregosa, in partnership with Saxo Bank, already offers you the opportunity to invest in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin through the GoBulling trading platform. Before investing in cryptocurrencies and taking on the risks involved, it is always recommended that you seek professional advice and carefully consider your risk profile.



3. Dividend Paying Stocks

Investing in dividend-paying stocks can provide you with a regular quarterly or annual income. This option can be particularly attractive to those looking for a steady source of passive income while on the move or working remotely.

In addition to receiving dividends, these shares can also be expected to appreciate. If the company in which you invest grows significantly and the value of your shares increases, there is scope to make additional profits by selling your shares at a higher price than their original value. You can also manage your investments from anywhere using online platforms such as GoBulling Pro.



4. ETFs

ETFs can be particularly appealing to digital nomads as they offer the opportunity to invest in different regions and sectors, adding geographic diversification to the portfolio. As a result, you have access to the benefits of economic growth regardless of your current location. In addition, ETFs can be bought and sold at any time, allowing you to manage your portfolio in an agile and timely manner while on the move.
