It can be difficult to know what to invest in when you are looking for a product that could be bound for success. There are risks, especially as a business’s potential market is constantly changing and looking for new entrepreneurs to make their mark. However, a lot of the time a company’s success is also made based on the date of when their investors supplied their finances. So, is it best to invest in a company in 2018 or should it wait for the future of 2019? This list may give you some ideas of when the best time to invest is.

The opportunities of Brexit

The UK is currently in a state of flux due to the emerging negotiations of Brexit, thus many businesses that were previously invested in expanding on an international scale are now under threat, with car sales now dropping by 20% due to uncertainty and changing regulation.  Thus, if you are considering investing now rather than later, then it is best to look into Autumn Budget to see what could affect you in 2018, and what could potentially be a problem in 2019. If you are interested in investing in businesses in 2018, you may be able to reap the rewards from the Enterprise Investment Scheme, as well as the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme, as the government is looking to invest in smaller businesses in the UK. However, if you need any advice on this then be sure to look into SEIS Advance Assurance, as this will make sure that you are investing in a good company and see if you are eligible for any tax reliefs.

Technology is a strong investment

With the recent Data Protection Act of 2018, you may be wondering about the problems that may come about for marketing and with the clear hacking problems within big businesses, like Facebook.  However, this can come as a fantastic opportunity for investments made in 2019. You may be interested in investing in Blockchain technology, which creates protection for Cryptocurrency and any data on your clients. Blockchain technology creates a secure and cost-effective way to send and receive payments from supplies and business partners on a secure platform, rendering hacking virtually impossible and also offering the potential for product tracking.

AI in Business

If you wish to invest in a business as quickly as possible, for instance before the end of 2018, then a fantastic way to start would be to invest in AI Technology. It is essential for any business to have a secure system to store their information upon, thus databases like the Cloud and IOT databases are a major investment for companies to store their business information upon. It can also be a fantastic means of keeping a business in contact with its employees, with perks like providing feedback to their work, keeping an eye on their schedules, as well as even documenting their payslips and arrival times. Invest in this sort of business and you will be making a profit in no time.
