The real estate remains last shelter of the fine investor
The population of the Russian Federation counts the most reliable way of an investment and storage of money purchase of the real estate, gold, and also the depositary account in the Savings Bank, follows from interrogation of the All-Russia centre of studying of public opinion () which sociologists have lead(carried out) October, 4-5, actually right after how consequences of world(global) financial crisis began to be felt in Russia. The main preferences of Russians on preservation of personal savings since 1998 have changed insignificantly. As well as ten years back, the leader of "insurance" of the personal finance from crisis began purchase of the real estate. That it " the most reliable way ", this year has noted more half interrogated (51 %), in 1998 - 45 %. For ten years the share of those who prefers purchase of gold and jewelry (from 26 % up to 19 %) has decreased. On the contrary, almost twice (from 9 % up to 17 %) the number of supporters of the Savings Bank has increased. The share of the respondents considering(counting) has essentially decreased, that it is favourable to store(keep) money in foreign currency, - from 39 % up to 7 %, that is five times. 13 % of respondents believe, that the most safe way of preservation of own means are available roubles (in 1998 such was 14 %). The variant " purchase of actions(shares) of the enterprises " has shown positive dynamics(changes) - it has specified 8 %, at that that ten years back such answers was only 3 %.
As follows from interrogation , 32 % of respondents have recognized, that they have bank contributions, and 13 % from them have declared, that are afraid of them to lose. More often investors are afraid for the savings because of uncertainty in political and economic stability (has noted 21 %), " recurrence of 1998 " (18 %). As other bases for alarms "inflation" (16 %) and a little bit abstract threat of " consequences of world(global) financial crisis " (15 %) is underlined. Besides investors do not trust domestic bank system (13 %) and are afraid of possible(probable) bankruptcy of the bank (12 %). This mistrust is perfectly illustrated by that, according to interrogation , only 2 % of Russians, as well as ten years back, count opening the account in commercial bank a reliable way of preservation of the savings.
