Learn about investing

En Español

Learning how to invest your money is a wonderful way for you to take control of your financial future.

Keep your goals in mind:

Understand your risk tolerance:

Knowing which type of investment is right for you requires you to think about how much of a chance you are able and willing to take with your money (your "risk tolerance") and weighing that against your potential for return.

Diversify your investments:

Make sure that your investments are diversified, which means that they are in many different areas, so that if any one investment is doing poorly, your entire portfolio of investments doesn't suffer.

Know your options:

Going to a financial planner can be a good way to find out information about investing for your future. Some banks offer free financial planning for a minimum investment.
