Where to invest $10,000 in ASX 200 shares for 2030

2020 has been a crazy ride for many ASX 200 share investors.

The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is down 10.6% in 2020 thanks largely to the steep bear market over February and March. 

It’s true that investing in the share market isn’t for everyone. There are a lot of factors that should be considered before diving into ASX 200 shares and one of them is time.

I believe if you’re not investing for at least the next 7 to 10 years, it may not be wise to buy right now.

But if you’re looking to invest for the next decade or more, here are a few shares I would buy with $10,000 today.

Where to invest $10,000 in ASX 200 shares for 2030

I like a couple of blue-chip shares in the current market.

The first one I’m looking at right now is Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG).

The Fortescue share price is up 32.7% this year and more than 600% in the last 5 years.

The Aussie iron ore miner could be set for a big decade of growth in the 2020s. I think a strong relationship with China and growing sales to India could be the key to success for Fortescue in the decade ahead.

Combine this with a potential infrastructure boom in the short to medium-term, and Fortescue is one ASX 200 share definitely worth watching right now.

A2 Milk Company Ltd (ASX: A2M) is another ASX blue-chip on my radar.

Just like Fortescue, this dual listed dairy share has seen strong growth over recent years. In fact, the A2 Milk share price has rocketed 26% higher in 2020 alone.

A2 Milk is looking to expand internationally and not just throughout Asia. On top of the lucrative Chinese market, the company is looking to establish a foothold with the brand in Canada.

If A2 Milk can execute on its strategy over the next 10 years, I think it could be worth much more than its current $13.4 billion valuation.

But, it’s not only the blue-chips that I’ve got my eye on. I also like the look of ASX 200 growth shares like Xero Limited (ASX: XRO).

Xero is a leading accounting software provider that targets small and medium enterprises (SMEs). More innovation and a rise in small business participation could be a good thing for Xero sales in the coming years.

If Xero can continue its market domination, then who knows where this Aussie tech share’s price will be in 10 years’ time.
