Investing 101

Investing implies making a financial commitment in exchange for a financial return. This basically implies that you invest money in order to make money and meet your financial objectives.

Ways to Start Investing In Stocks


Individual stock purchases need considerable study, continual scrutiny, and a risk appetite. Most retirees don’t want to cope with those kinds of issues. If stock investing appeals to you, we recommend allocating no more than 10% of the whole value of your retirement account to it.

Mutual Funds

Mutual Funds are a type of investment vehicle that allows you to invest. A mutual fund is a collection of investments, primarily stocks, that have something in common, such as firms that make up a market index, a certain asset class (bonds, overseas stocks), or a specific industry (companies in the energy industry, technology stocks). Even mutual funds exist that invest primarily in firms that follow particular ethical or environmental ideals.

ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds)

Like index funds, ETFs contain a bundle of investments that can range from stocks to bonds to currencies and cash. The beauty of an ETF is that it trades like a stock, which means investors can purchase them for a share price that is often less than the $500-plus minimum investment many mutual funds require.
