How To Get a 10% Return on Investment in 2020

How To Get 10% Return On Your Investment in 2020

If you’ve clicked on this article, there’s a high chance that you’re looking for a 10% return on investment. Receiving such high returns on your investment can almost certainly seem too good to be true, but we’re here to deliver the good news.

Earning 10% return on your investment is entirely possible. Not only that, but it’s not actually as difficult to achieve as you think.  

Are you getting the rate of return that you’re happy with? If not, it may be worth spending some time looking at more lucrative investments. 

That’s where we come in, below we’ve investigated all the different investments that provide a 10% return on investment and more. Of course, some are more manageable than others.



Leverage investments or ‘leveraging’ is a technique that seeks a higher return on investment, this is achieved by utilising borrowed money. Leveraging is an investment strategy that can provide significant returns, but is also equally just as risky.

Leveraging works under the presumption that the desired return on the total value invested (both your investment and borrowed funds) is higher than the interest of the borrowed funds. 

There’s no definitive answer to how much of a return investing in leveraging can generate, each situation is different. The return which you’d expect on your investment could actually be lower, resulting in minimal return, or worse, a loss.

Real Estate

Real estate, unsurprisingly, can provide a considerable return on your investment. This includes buy-to-let properties, REITs (real estate investment trusts), peer-to-peer lending. 

Investing in properties is a great way to earn over 10% return on your investment, this can be as much as 15%. As an unwritten rule for real estate investments, 10% is a good return on investment with 12% performing above average. 

As with any other investments, there are of course some downsides. All these returns are provisional, the returns provided are dependent on various conditions. 

If the housing market crashes causing you to sell at a loss this could affect your return. The monthly returns generated by the property are reliant on having tenants. If there’s a crossover period with a tenant moving out and another moving in, there’s a transition period where you’re not making money.

Also, if you solely own the property things like general maintenance is your responsibility to uphold. The boiler needs replacing, that’s £1,000. The tenant finds a leak, that’s £500. The door needs a new frame, that’s £120. You get the idea.

High Yield Bonds (or Junk Bonds)

High yield bonds do not have a fixed rate of interest and therefore we cannot provide you with a definitive figure. However, it can be said that high yield bonds are extremely lucrative, with some even promising upwards of 10% return on investment. 

With that being said, these high yield bonds can turn out to be ‘junk’ or ‘junk bonds’. These are met with considerably higher amounts of risk, although, if the bonds don’t default they can successfully deliver those returns.

Bonds can be judged based on their bond’s credit rating to determine how likely they are to default. This is split into two categories; Investment Grade and Junk. 

Investment Grade

Bonds with an investment-grade come from corporations that have a high probability of making repayments, and therefore a lower chance of defaulting.

These are graded from AAA (excellent) to BBB (adequate). Anything lower, so a BB would be classed as ‘junk’. 


Junk grade is quite the opposite of investment-grade, as you’d most likely have guessed from the name. Companies with ratings this low may struggle to generate the money required to fund ongoing business operations, nevermind make repayments. 

Anything lower than and including BB would be classed as junk, ranging from CCC (currently vulnerable to non-payment) to D (in default).

Savings Accounts Are Out Of The Question

Suffice to say, savings accounts are unable to generate anywhere near 10%. The national average rate for savings accounts (October 2020) is 0.06% which even when rounded up to 1% is just not going to cut it.

Even high yield savings accounts at around 2% are still nowhere near where you’d need it to be to produce a considerable return.  

Car Leasing

Car leasing as a ‘buy-to-let investment’ is an investment strategy that doesn’t get as much as the limelight as other traditional models. 

We’re all familiar with buy-to-let in regards to property and real estate. But, say hello to Buy2LetCars, a new, fresh investment strategy that utilises cars as a form of investment.

Here at Buy2LetCars we provide a hassle free alternative to standard investments,as a means to achieve your high returns with minimal involvement on your part. 

Our investments provide a mixture of both passive income and a final lump sum, that in all is able to provide 10% or more return on investment. 

We know what you’re thinking, that all sounds great – but how does it work

Why Should You Invest With Buy2LetCars For a 10% Return?

At Buy2LetCars, our entire business model is built around delivering investment opportunities that are met with transparency, simplicity and the high returns you deserve. Not to mention providing a means of investing that is socially responsible.

Your money is invested over a three year period, in which time you’ll receive both residual monthly income and a final lump sum. This provides an impressive 7-11% return on your investment, which is largely above what most other investments can offer.

We know when you’re investing that you want to know the ins and outs, where does the money go and what generates my return. Buy2LetCars as you may have guessed from the name, buys a fleet of cars using your investment and leases them out over a 36 month period. 

The best part? We handle all the nitty gritty, signing on the dotted line, customer service, so you don’t have to. 

1) No Hassle

Investing can sometimes be a full time job, most investments such as property require your full divided attention. You can expect a 3am phone call about a leaky tap, or spending hours trying to find a suitable tenant, or worse, chasing payments.

At Buy2LetCars, we pride ourselves on providing an investment that not just generates a 10% return on investment but also is hassle-free. We handle everything, from the purchase of the cars to the leasing of them. 

Who said investing had to be stressful?

2) Reliable, Fixed Payments

Our investments start at £7,000 and work upwards, the more you have to invest the more return on your investment you can expect to see. Providing a scalable solution to help you get the most out of your money, earning a 10% return on investment has never been so easy.

The returns generated by car leasing are much higher than other investments, savings accounts and ISAs struggle to generate 2%, nevermind a 10% return on investment.

With payments being deposited straight into your bank each money, every month, for 36 months, without fault.

3) Zero Defaults

Zero defaults? You read that right, you can stop rubbing your eyes. Here at Buy2LetCars, we provide an investment opportunity that is met with zero defaults, our investors have never missed out on a payment.

We understand that investing for high returns can often be met with considerable risk, as we’ve seen with property, junk bonds and leveraging. But, it doesn’t have to be.

We make the process clear from the beginning, our investors know exactly what they’re getting – so there’s no nasty surprises along the way!

Things To Consider Before Investing For a 10% Return

It’s easy when you’re investing to let the high returns get the best of you, but it’s important to consider a few things before you’re looking to invest even a single penny. 

Certainly, if you’re new to investing you may benefit from reading our ‘Beginners Guide to Investing’.

Determine Your Investment Risk

An investment is very much trying to balance risk vs reward as much as possible. Do you choose an investment that has a low return, but no chance of defaulting? Or, do you choose an investment that has the potential to make it rain money, but equally has the chance to fall flat on its face?

If you’re looking at each investment individually, balancing the risk involved is essential to see your return. However, with diversification, this matters less so.

Is Your Portfolio Diverse?

Ensuring your portfolio of investments is diversified is key to maintaining a stabilised stream of returns. Without diversification, it’s pretty difficult to consistently deliver positive results, much due to the nature of investing and its volatility. 

The idea behind diversifying your portfolio is to strengthen your assets, protect them. This works by choosing investments that are inherently opposite of each other, ie. industries, locations, asset types. 

This means that when one of your investments is suffering, there’s a high chance that opposite assets are benefiting. Having certain assets perform well while some are performing poorly is able to balance out your returns as a whole.

Monitor Your Portfolio Regularly

Investing, depending on what strategy you’re eyeing up requires a lot of work. Investing has a lot of moving parts, and to benefit as much as possible you need to keep an eye on these. 

Certainly, high yield investments are paired with equally high amounts of risk, it’s important to watch how these perform so you know when to get out.
