Any sane person understands that to keep money at home (under the mattress or in a stocking) — not the best idea. In order to protect the money from inflation, you must invest your savings in certain financial instruments. It is understood by all. But then arguments usually stalled. There are dozens of questions: what are these tools? How to use them? Is it worth it at all to dig, will pay for any extra percentage of income associated with investment difficulties? We will try to answer at least some of these issues.

First, the object (tool) in which we will store savings must be reliable, have a low degree of risk. It is obvious that high yield and high risk investments are more suited to the professional speculators, having good preparation.
Second, despite the high degree of reliability, the investments should provide capital growth, i.e. to cover inflation at least by a few percent (to get an idea about the real dimensions of a profitability review of data on inflation in Russia for years).

As you can see, the choice is quite large — it is only the basic ways, most of them are subspecies. The main task of the person who wants to protect and increase your savings is to choose the most relevant, timely tool. The fact that all the assets listed above, except for deposits, do not necessarily produce a nominal profit, and the rates on deposits in most cases (but not always!) are not large enough to cope with the period of money.
