Investing: the basics
Before launching your investment portfolio, it is important to be aware of the strategies you can adapt to manage the risks involved in achieving your investment goals.
Here are some basics to assist you on your investment journey:
Spreading your money across a number of different industry sectors, asset classes and even geographic locations will help reduce the risk of loss if one investment ends up performing poorly.
It is important to realise you are making a long-term investment. The market will naturally fluctuate and is crucial not to panic when this happens.
Reacting without thinking can cause a loss and having a plan in place will help you make the best decision when the market changes.
Seek professional advice
It may be beneficial to speak with a financial advisor. Financial advisors can offer industry knowledge to help you make the best decisions to grow your investment portfolio.
