Cash is usually the least volatile type of investment. Cash tends to be included in a portfolio to meet liquidity needs and for its defensive characteristics.
Cash investments include cash accounts, high-interest savings accounts and term deposits. In these accounts interest is calculated on the daily closing balance of the account and paid monthly (in the case of cash and high-interest savings accounts) and monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually or at the end of the term in the case of term deposits. The interest can also be reinvested in the account to compound returns.
However, cash investments generally aren’t suitable for long-term investment goals because the returns are likely to be low and may not meet your long-term financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement.
