With 2023 looming ever closer, you may be thinking about how best to invest your money in the new year. Industry experts have been predicting the investment types that will flourish in 2023, based on past and current performance. Here are three that are tipped to be popular.
For existing property investors, it seems that additional property investment is the plan for 2023. A survey by Finbri shows that 50.45% of those who already invest in property will be putting more money into property next year. Amongst those with a portfolio of at least five property assets, this figure rises to 68%.
With UK house prices falling at the fastest rate in 14 years, according to Halifax, could we see property investment growing in 2023?
- Defensive and value stocks
With interest rates rising globally and economic forecasts looking bleak, UBS Global Wealth Management has predicted that defensive and value stocks will rise in popularity in 2023. They believe that defensive sectors – which include healthcare and consumer staples – will be able to weather this period of economic uncertainty.
They also state that value stocks will continue to remain popular next year, after they outperformed growth stocks by 18 percentage points between January and October 2022.
- Fine wine
In 2021, according to the Knight Frank Wealth Report, fine wine delivered an average return of 16% over the course of the year. Fine wines regularly outperform the Consumer Price Index – and with top wines produced in such small batches, enthusiasts are often willing to pay a premium for a particular bottle.
There are three main ways to invest in the wine sector: buying bottles, buying a vineyard, or investing in wine-based stocks or funds. Learn more about investing in wine here.
