Every now and then I would receive a call from my personal banker. I've been a loyal patron of a bank so she would give me a complete sales talk on how to better invest my money. Her startup advice involves long term investments in venture capital firms. Terms which I am quite unfamiliar, truth be told. It is also in my opinion a bit risky therefore so far I haven't made a decision yet. I tend to stick to the familiar savings accounts and time deposits variety. But with the low interest rates nowadays, I just might take heed of her financial advice soon!
