There are numerous sources of information out there, which can make it difficult to know where to begin. For new investors, I usually recommend the following 3 books: “The Investment Answer” by Dan Goldie, “The One Page Financial Plan” by Carl Richards, and “The Behavior Gap” by Carl Richards. Each book focuses on a different component to successfully managing your own finances.

The Investment Answer is a short book focused specifically on investing. You can read it in a few hours and learn everything you need to know to have a successful investment experience.

The One Page Financial Plan is more financial planning oriented. Another relatively short read, it will teach you what you need to know to develop a financial plan that guides your investment portfolio.

As the name suggest, The Behavior Gap is focused on the emotions and behaviors that cause so many investors to sabotage their financial plans and investment portfolios.

Reading these books will provide a very solid foundation that you can continue to expand upon over time.
