I am an 18 years old student living in Switzerland, doing my apprenticeship as a software developer. In the last few years I saved around 10'000 francs and instead of buying a car I thought to invest my money. I am looking for a way to make a fast profit. I know there are no free lunches and I know that I will have to invest some time.
These are the ideas that I got from my research:
Give the money to a Swiss bank and let them do the job with one of their "high risk, high profit" plans, not having the investment fully in my own hands.
Borrow money from the bank and buy an apartment in a rising neighbourhood, hoping that the price of the apartment rises (house flipping).
Look for startups and invest small amounts such as 200 Francs in their shares, with the hope one of them grows and makes profit.
I really don't know how good my ideas are or how well they will work with the current financial conditions in Switzerland.
A lot of the stuff I read was outdated and doesn't work in Switzerland.
For a student with about 10'000 francs saved and the financial conditions in Switzerland right now, is there any particular place or way I should invest or can you give my some tips for what to look out?
