    Question What is the benefit of performing financial investment?

    Hi,

    I wrote below question for financial investment, but it sounds unnatural by using "performing".

    What is the benefit of performing financial investment?
    Below is an alternative sentence, but it sounds the same as the above.

    What is the benefit of doing financial investment?
    How do native speakers ask the same question with natural and professional statement?

    Thanks.

    "What is the benefit/are the benefits of making financial investments?"

    Or, "What is the benefit of investing financially?"

    The plural benefits sounds better to me.
