Everyone out there wants to be rich in life. Living in luxury is not that difficult if a right approach on right time is adopted. Warren Buffett, world's richest investor says, "The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself. The more you learn, the more you'll earn.'' Investments are considered as plants that can fetch you fruits, once they turn into trees. This is why a person should always start investing as early as possible. Most investors want high returns as quickly as possible with minimum or no risk of losing the principal amount invested initially. This is why many of them choose shortcuts or fall in traps. However, it remains a fact that investment products that give high returns with low or no risk do not exist. Returns are always inversely related to the risk involved in investments.
Diversification of the portfolio is the key to earn more throughout life. Here are the best options to invest in 2019 and grow your money fast:

Indian stock markets have given huge returns to investors. However, it is true that the equity market is highly volatile and risky to invest.

However one should never work without fixing a stop-loss to limit expected or unexpected losses.

At present, mutual funds have given over 20 per cent average returns for 5 years, While 15 per cent average returns for 1 and 3 years, depending upon the category of the option and its time of holding.
Gold has been the most favorite investment option for Indians. People are investing in jewelry, coins, solid gold forms since ages.

Houses or properties are an expensive way of investing money but are not only meant for possessions, as they can help to earn solid. However, one should never consider a self-consumed house as an investment. Property not only appreciates but it can also be used to earn a rental income.
