“Keri Ogden is a relatively new certified advisor, but has already helped many individuals and families by bridging the gap between the accumulation phase and the preservation phase.”


Job Title:

Director Of Client Services


Keri Ogden believes that knowledge is power. Unfortunately, our education system doesn’t teach us how to be good investors & most advisors cater exclusively to high-net worth clients. Leaving would-be investors, who are still accumulating wealth, without proper advice. That’s why she joined Investopedia's Advisor Insights and strives to educate clients on the power of investing early and often.

How should I invest my extra income to see growth in one year?
54% of people found this answer helpful

If your primary objective is growth, then opening a investment account with a growth strategy would generally be more beneficial than opening a savings account. This is because, by investing in the market, you are benefiting from any growth in the market. A conservative estimate of the average growth of the market is 7%. However, this rate of return is not guaranteed and some years the market may deliver returns far below 7% and some years the market may deliver returns greater than 7%.  This uncertainty is contrasted by a traditional savings account, where your return is pre-determined by the interest rate you recieve from your bank.  While bank accounts offer a steady return, that return is often negatively offset by inflation. I.e. if the your bank offers you 2% interest rate on your savings, but inflation is around 4%, you would be losing 2% each year. 

That said, there are many factors to consider when you are ready to start investing, including your risk capacity, risk tolerance, and time horizon. I recommend seeking the advice of a registered investment advisor before diving into the market.
