Investment Basics 101

So you're thinking about investing, or perhaps you've suddenly realised that you're already an investor because your compulsory superannuation is already invested somewhere (hopefully)

Either way, it's time to take a closer interest in where your wealth is and what it's supposed to be doing for you

If you're just starting out as an investor, there's a lot of information to understand - but that's ok, everything we know we had to learn sometime. Here we cover some of the fundamental issues, such as the different types of asset classes, risk and return, compounding and diversification.

The easiest way of deciding how to invest your money is to look at the pros and cons of the various possibilities and then match them to your needs, expectations and plans over time.
