Historical Significance of Capital Appreciation vs. Traditional Saving

Date : 29/09/2019 Author: Abdulmohsen Al-Mudhaf

Growing up, most individuals are conditioned to think under a certain umbrella of operations and actions. One that is fairly universal and familiar to us is the idea of saving which, as we will examine later on, carries with it a wide range of definitions. Conventional thinking adopts a low-risk, ‘sensible’ method of saving in its usage of commercial banking savings accounts. While this may be a fairly easy option for most, historical evidence may advocate for other means of appreciating collected savings and could point to a vast difference in both. The objective of this piece is to highlight both ideologies and, hopefully, set the scene for an argument that has existed since the dawn of the modern-day financial era. Moreover, when we examine the aforementioned methodologies for what they are and understand exactly how they satisfy certain related subgroups of the general population, we are able to then visualize the spectrum of risk appetites and see just how intricate that spectrum can get.

SMEs have a great potential to become large-scale companies, considering the fact that they provide new technologies, services and products to serve the market. There are several ways to approach SMEs, the most common ones would be either by Angel investors or Venture Capital firms. Governments in the GCC are recognizing the importance of SMEs and are coming up with tactics to promote that community.
