Now to make it as practical as possible for you, all of these passive income investments can be turned into cash within 3-5 business days, and the amount of work required from your end is less an episode of your favorite show on Netflix per month.

On top of that, each of these passive income investment ideas will get a rating out of 5 on risk, and a rating out of 5 for returns.

When it comes to risk, 1 is high risk, 5 and low risk. With returns, 1 is low returns, 5 is high returns.

Passive Income Investment #1 – Index Funds
Index funds are essentially a portfolio filled with the world’s top companies. Now depending on which country’s index you are buying, the dividend yields on those indexes are very different.

For example, the S&P500 yields approximately 2.31% as of recording this video, whereas ASX200 (the top 200 companies in AU) yields 4.4%.

Risk = 3/5
Returns = 4/5
Total 7/10

Passive Income Investment #2 – Fixed Income Assets
Don’t let the name scare you, it essentially means that you’re lending money to someone else, and the borrower is obliged to make a FIXED payment on a set time schedule.

For example, certificates of deposits, government and municipal bonds, even peer to peer lending are all examples of fixed income assets. (the concept is similar, you’re just lending to different entities)

Risk = 4/5
Returns 2/5
Total = 6/10

Passive Income Investment #3 – Real Estate
Since I can’t afford rental properties yet, real estate investment trusts are another option for me to get exposure into the real estate market.

Here’s how I evaluate what REITs to invest in. (don’t worry I have a few suggestions to get you started in the video)

2 main criteria
1. Strong balance sheet (that means that the REIT has enough cash to hand short term liabilities many times over)
2. Own resilience and essential properties

Risk = 3/5
Returns 3/5
Total 6/10

Passive Income Investment #4 – Round Up Apps
This is where I started investing! When you’re investing for passive income in round up apps, you have a few portfolio to choose from to match your risk appetite.

The higher the risk profile of the portfolio, the more equities you’ll be exposed to.

Risk = 3/5
Returns = 3/5
Total = 6/10

Passive Income Investment #5 – Dividend Stocks
Investing in dividend stocks for passive income is one of my favorite things in the world right now. In the video, I reveal my entire portfolio, and this passive income investment is currently generating $150+ per month in cash flow for me.

Risk = 3/5
Returns 4/5
Total = 7/10

David, I like your advice on Fixed income assets. Investing in government bonds sounds like a good idea that I should invest in since it is low risk, but I understand that the reward won't be a lot at the end of day.
