Pay off your mortgage.
Do you have enough money, and are you sure you do not need this in the future? In that case, it is beneficial to pay off part of your mortgage with this money. Saving does not yield any return, while you have to pay interest on your mortgage. So it saves you money when you use your savings to pay off a part of your mortgage. However, bear in mind that it is wise to discuss your situation with a financial advisor.
You should not forget that investing is a risky practice. The more risk you face, the higher your return will be. When you invest in green investments, you are entitled to fiscal benefits. Here, you can read more about green investments.
Pay off expensive loans.
Loans could cost you a lot of money. The interest you pay on loans is almost always higher than the interest rate you receive on savings. Why won’t you pay off these loans if you have enough savings you don’t need? It will save you paying interest and capital gains tax.
Only take the actions mentioned above with savings that you don’t need in the future. It is advisable to keep some savings in your bank account.
