Protect

The second step in choosing an investment is to protect your hard-earned money by being informed. This includes gaining a thorough understanding of the investment you are considering and being aware of the trade-off between risk and reward. The investment should closely reflect your investment goals and risk tolerance. Without taking the time to conduct the proper research, you may be exposed to an unsuitable investment or fraud that could be financially crippling.

Some questions you might want to ask include:

  • How do I check out an investment?
  • How much should I invest to achieve my goals?
  • Is this investment too good to be true?
  • Whose advice should I take about investing?
