    What are your favourite methods of saving and investment?

    That's right. In reality, fear stops people investing. With that being said, it makes sense to have some cash for emergencies, and if people are saving up for short-term objectives. It doesn't make sense to invest for one year to save up for a holiday, for example, due to market volatility.

    Will the pandemic permanently affect property prices?

    I suspect it will. For decades big cities have outperformed. Look at a place like the UK. Nationwide, the UK's real terms house prices are below their 2008 levels. Yet London prices have gone up and up, whilst plenty of places in the North and Midlands have struggled badly. Some have even...

    Is weighting ETFs by market cap the best way?

    There is a lot of debate about this. People say that the problem with market-cap based indexes is that most of your money goes to the big firms. In other words, as you buy the S&P500, you don't buy the 500 firms equally. You buy more of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Apple, Google etc. You don't...

    Is getting an inheritance always a good thing?

    It can be a bad thing. Look at the stats. As an old and famous Chinese saying goes, wealth seldom lasts three generations or more. Where it does, it seems like the first generation put constraints on what can be done with the money. Royal families can't get access to all the money due to a...

    Is now the time to buy emerging markets?

    As per the analysis on portfolio visualiser emerging markets haven't beaten developed ones, and especially US ones - https://www.portfoliovisualizer.com. Whilst US stock markets have averaged 10% per year if dividends have been reinvested, emerging have done about 6%. Added to that, the worst...

    Rentberry

    I haven't looked at this stock before. I will take a look. Have you looked at factors like price:earnings ratios and various analysis? As a general comment I would keep individual stock picks down to 10% of a total portfolio. It is much riskier than holding the entire markets through ETFs.

    Are sustainable energy ETFs and stocks a good idea?

    Yes I agree. Although, the sector is highly dependent on government financing, so risks remain. Areas like lab grown meat could grow a lot as well.

    How can I pass on my property (Primary residence) to my child?

    This article is one of the best guides - https://www.elderlawanswers.com/how-to-pass-your-home-to-your-children-tax-free-15866. I will write my own soon for somebody in your situation. Seems inheritance or gifting the property can be done on a fairly tax-efficient manner, but I would check if...
