Firstly I would like to ask, what is a good investment? What would you consider a good investment? 

According to Motley Fool, an average annual rate of return of 10% or more is a good ROI for long-term investments in the stock market.

An African will describe a good investment as one that gives a yearly return of 10%, gives little to no stress in investing and is available for compound investment.

Defining a good investment is also dependent on a number of factors. 

The most important factor in determining a good investment is your financial need. Is it for long term or short term? For example, a young couple looking to invest for their unborn children’s education fees. A good investment will be one that has enough compound growth to help pay their children’s school fees in the coming years. This young couple’s investment will be different from a retiree looking to supplement their income in the present years. Also, people’s definition of good living differs, so this affects definitions of a good investment as well.

Now, what is Bamboo?

First off, Bamboo is not a tree (which is technically true, according to google), and neither is it a scam. Bamboo is an investment platform that allows you to invest in the U.S. Stock market with as little as $1. With a market cap of over $31 trillion, the U.S. stock market makes up over 85% of all dollars that go into the global markets. The U.S. stock market comprises global companies in the US, Europe, China, Asia, think Alibaba, Apple, Facebook, Google and many more. So imagine you have a slice of these companies with as little as $1, some of which pay dividends quarterly, yearly. For more information on the safety of our platform, read here

It is also important to understand what you’re investing in to evaluate what a good investment is.
