5 Things You Must Consider Before You Start Investing

So you’re ready to start investing?

Whether you’re a first-timer or an experienced investor, there are some fundamental questions you should always ask before you entrust your hard-earned money to an investment.

These five critical questions will save you a lot of drama.

  1. Do I understand what I am investing in? Smart investors perform due diligence and research about investments before making a decision. In this case, Google is your friend. But if you require a more personified approach to your research whereby you need to speak with an expert, visit here and take advantage of our pool of investment analysts ready to speak with you at no extra cost.
  2. Am I putting all my eggs in one basket? It will be highly risky behaviour to put all your money in one investment plan. To enjoy peace of mind and dividends of your investment, consider diversifying your portfolio. However, this is not a decision you should take all by yourself. A portfolio manager will enlighten you about the best investment opportunities available. The work we do at BizVest makes it easy for potential investors to get advice at no extra cost.
  3. Am I being too emotional about my investment decisions? Smart investors choose strategy over emotions when it comes to investing their money. A good investment strategy involves a set goal, target and duration of time which could be long-term or short-term. Overall, ensure you stick to your strategy and never allow your emotions to overshadow your decisions when making investments.
  4. Am I taking too high a risk? Oftentimes if the opportunity sounds too good to be true, speak with a risk analyst or your portfolio manager for clarifications. Essentially, short-term investments with very high returns are usually risky. The best investment is the one that gives you peace of mind. Again, if you are unsure about the feasibility of the ROI, simply speak with your portfolio manager for expert advice.
  5. Which investment platform is best for me? The decision about where to invest your money is a very personal and critical one. Trust and experience come to play here. With investments you don’t follow the crowd, rather you pay attention to facts, numbers and details. A platform that has a track record of successful investment portfolios, authentic reviews and expertise should be top of your consideration.
