    I am 19 taking a gap year and have saved up £40,000 from working full-time since I was 16 whilst at school , saving 100% of any money I came into and getting involved in something that I now regret but it made me a huge amount of money for my age.

    I am thinking of purchasing a Buy to Let Property with a 40% Deposit , however I know very little about investing and other options. I am looking for a long-term return over about 15 years with regular passive income.

    Do the buy-to-let thing? Investing in property is always the best. But you could easily put deposit(s) down for house(s), and get clients in who willl pay more rent than the mortgage costs. Then you'll have a wee bit of income, and in a couple of decades when it's paid off, you can sell the house for many times more than your deposit was.

    Would that be advantageous opposed to buying one property on a 40% deposit

    Yup, definitely use the £40,000 as a deposit for a property. The value of properties in the UK (London, in particular) are guaranteed to appreciate significantly over the next 15 or so years. So it's certainly a worthwhile investment


    P.S. Great username by the way haha

    buy to let is a risk with the current predictions for the rise in stamp duty i would look at if you want something that is paying you would be an investment i a small business where you could double or triple the investment maybe more something in a growth market or a franchise like high-end jewellery and watches or a pawnbrokers which are spreading like wildfire right now if you want passive or i know how to get stuff if you want an active role trading good jewellery to the trade like i do (i am taking 5kg of gold chains on memo and have 5 rolexes in shipping to me to resell for a 150-200% mark-up over cost)
