How to choose your investments

Knowing how to choose your investments can be a big challenge. The sheer number of options available can make your head spin. And getting comfortable with the financial jargon, like the difference between stocks and bonds, cash, currencies, commodities, asset classes, etc., can be confusing. Plus, if you’re just starting out on your investing journey, you might feel a lot of resistance to diving in.

But I’m a firm believer in simplifying your investments. Investing isn’t rocket science. It doesn’t need to be complicated. Especially when you’re just starting out.

The good news is, that if you watched my last Vlog, you already know the basics of how to get started. And today’s Vlog will help you take it to the next level so you can begin investing.

How to choose your investments

We’ve all heard the saying “don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. Choosing your investments is just like that. You want to divide your money between different types of investments, also known as assets.

Asset allocation is the way you divide your money between different assets, like stocks and bonds.

In today’s Vlog, I talk about:
– Asset Allocation
– A quick difference between stocks & bonds
– A rule of thumb on how to divide up your investments based on your age

I know the vlog gets a little technical. So feel free to watch it a few times. Until the concepts are clear.
