What is Investing

Involves strategic planning and management of money to ensure your money is working for you

Why should you Invest

If you keep your money in your back pocket instead of investing it, your money doesn't work for you. You will never have more money than what you save. By investing your money, you are getting your money to generate more money by earning interest on what you put away or by buying and selling assets that increase in value.

Other Common Investments

Stock-the goods or merchandise kept on the premises of a business or warehouse and available for sale or distribution.

Cash-Have the least amount of risk because of there value cannot go below wha you deposited

Portfolio-All the investments you own, stocks, bonds, cash investments or others


How should we start investing with a small amount of money?

Mutual Funds- A mutual fund is a club with thousands of members. A group pool their money together, invest and share the profits and losses

Bonds- A debit or lean between two parties which is agreed to be paid back at a certain period of time with a certain amount of interest
