What do you use as alternative to DaP?

Here in Chile I just use DaP because it seems safer and a no worries solution, I tend to select more riskier investments in my homecountry, not in Chile.
It is true that inflation just eats any interest profits though..

As a starter, a small apartment in a high demand sector, should give you around 5% return from rents, plus your place should give as a minimum a constant UF value, ie covers inflation. So in effect you are getting inflation + 5% a year. I certainly wouldnt classify this type of investment as risky.

Hm.. buying an apartment for renting is a bigger commitment than what I'm looking for right now.

then get a cd in UF.

still I look at them as a place to save or park money, not to invest for any great length of time. no CD in the world right now is providing much of a return with interest rates so low.

you know a few years back, I made some (obvious) investment moves like that. I made lots of money. I did not sleep well because of it. I realized I need a good nights sleep, more than more money.

now, that is not to say I am not willing to make money off of headlines, just worked out less morally "icky" ways to do it.

for example, oil price rises. don't invest in oil. go green energy related investments.

By the way, in a middle east oil disruption of any size, green energy related investments is like a mega leveraged play on oil; while it takes a bite out of the energy market permanently.

Yes, green energy investment are a nice play at the moment as diesel starts to hit 700 CLP.
