Through the various sections of this tutorial, we’ve introduced and discussed a number of investing concepts and investing vehicles. Among them are:
· Mutual Funds
· Passive index mutual funds and ETFs

· Real estate and alternative investing
· The importance of diversification
· Compounding and the benefit of starting early
· The concept of building a diversified portfolio

Moreover, we stressed the idea that investing is not one size fits all. Different strategies work for different investors and different situations. Additionally, an investor might employ more than one strategy, or choose a variety of investment vehicles depending upon their goals.
Have a plan and a strategy
Just like going on trip in your car, it is important that investors have a plan and a destination in mind before investing their money. Your goals—whether planning for retirement or buying a home—dictate your time horizon, which dictates your tolerance for risk. Additionally, you want to make sure that you diversify your investments so that some do well when the rest of your portfolio might not. This approach allows an investor to construct a portfolio that is in line with their risk tolerance and that balances potential return with some downside risk protection.
Hopefully our tutorial has provided some insights and good ideas as you invest for your future.
