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.

Your journey is just beginning, however. Your challenge is to keep learning and stay informed.
