If you are a big fan of investment with low volatility and risk, then you may consider putting your money in bonds.
When you buy a bond, you simply lend your money to a private or public entity for a long period of time(let say 5 years), at a guaranteed and moderately high interest rate (let say 25%).
You would be issued a bond certificate which gives you the right to receive accrued interest every year and your initial capital after the bond term expires.
The major difference between Investing in bonds and mutual funds is that bonds are safer and more profitable than mutual funds. Bonds are best for long term investors.
