Investing – what to consider

Investing can help you achieve your goals, but it can also be quite confusing.

There are five core investment principles to consider when building your investment portfolio. These principles help you make informed investment choices.

1. Know your risk profile

It’s risky to invest in financial markets. There’s a chance the value of investments will rise or fall in value. Do you prefer slow but steady growth, or are you willing to experience ups and downs for potentially greater returns over the long run?

Investments: What is investing?

Investing is putting your money to work to create income or grow your wealth. It’s about understanding your current and future needs and developing a plan (or investment strategy) that will help you move through life.

And it starts with setting some goals.

Setting goals

Before you invest, it’s important you set realistic goals. Take the time to work out why you’re investing, how much you have to invest and when you need a return.

Once you have these foundations in place, it’s easier to make decisions about your investment strategy.
