Currently there are several ways to save, either in funds, programs or foreign currency savings. The latter alternative has taken rise because many people are worried about losing their money if they take devaluation or economic downturns at home. Remember that the savings in foreign currency, like any other investment, carries a risk probability. It is always advisable to seek advice from an expert and you stay well informed, before entering the foreign exchange market.
If you choose this type of savings, then we will give you some details to protect yourself:
* Invest. If you save a certain amount accumulated in foreign currency, you run the risk of losing their value with inflation. To counter this effect, we recommend you open a fund that gives you returns.
* Monitor the market. Saving any other foreign currency, means that you must be aware of market fluctuations. Note that large amounts of money, any minor variation can have a major impact on the final amount.
* Diversify. In the case of savings in foreign currency, the Bank of Mexico should only save up to 30% of your current assets. This suggestion applies to any investment and means you should not put all your money in one place, as it increases the risk. Think about that when you have the money divided into several instruments, if you have one loss, there is still support from others, without affecting your money.
* Use your money. The convenience of your savings will depend on several factors, one of the most important how often you use the currency in which you are saving. For example, if you chose to save in dollars and often visits the United States, the savings in this currency is convenient for you as you spend and invest in it. Conversely, if you do not plan to use it at some point, it is best to keep the amount low simply as an investment, as in speculating on the market could lose a significant percentage of your savings.
