David Adefeso just told his fans and followers that their savings account is a bad investment. Check out what more he had to say.
‘Your savings account is a bad place to hold your long-term investments due to the silent “asset killer” called Inflation. SIDE NOTE: When I shot this video a few months back, annual inflation was at 5%, but has now shot up to 7% today. With savings accounts currently yielding an average of 0.06%; This means your savings account is on track to lose you -6.94% this year in real dollars….all while you sleep,’ David said.
He continued and said: ‘It’s the opposite of what I call “Sleep Money” because you lose, not gain, money while you sleep. Click on the link in my bio for the full episode and to learn more #wealthdemystified #savings #financetips.’

Someone said: ‘Thanks for the great advice. I agree that savings accounts pay little to nothing in interests. For me, I have been holding money in my savings account so I can buy real estate and hopefully make a better return than 0.06%.’
A follower posted this: ‘Thanks for the advice and so true. But I have also been losing badly on mutual fund investment in shares. So what’s the alternative that would give me a yield slightly above inflation, David ?’
A commenter said: ‘A 529 Education Savings Plan is a great, higher yielding, tax-efficient, alternative to savings accounts when it comes to saving for education expenses.’
A fan posted this: ‘thanks for all the advice!’
