Secret of the BuffaloBe deliberate and steady with your investments.
          personal financial planning and advice on the money secret of the buffalo

          Financial institutions invest your money in order to make it grow.

          Just like you pay interest on loans, a financial institution will pay you a reward for investing your money with them.

          Your job is to choose the investments that suit you, and to stick to them. If you leave your investment for a long period of time, the investment not only grows each year, but grows exponentially. This means that you not only earn interest on your initial investment, but that the interest gets added each month or year to the initial amount, and you earn interest on that interest as well.

          The mighty buffalo is deliberate and steady, waiting all day for the hot African sun to pass. It steadily grows and protects its herd, knowing its strength and future are in its numbers. Our lesson is that it's important to leave your investment for a long period of time - so it can grow.
