An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
The most important thing you'll ever do in your financial life is to decide to truly understand the various types of investments and what their potential risks and returns are.
A Simple Reminder!
Before you invest, you must first decide what your financial goals are. What do you want to accomplish, and in what period? What's your risk tolerance, the amount of risk that you're comfortable with? Without a clear understanding of your desires, your needs, and your potential concerns, what to invest in is not clear.
There are lots of financial instruments that will help you to reach time and financial freedom such as Stocks, Mutual Funds, UITF, REIT, and Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF).
Holding different types of investment in a portfolio minimizes risk through diversification. As the old saying goes, "Do not put all your eggs in one basket." Diversification helps manage risks!
