Market Information for Investors


The market is an excellent way to put your savings to work. Many types of investments are traded in the markets and the choice of investments is broad. The key to being successful with an investment program is to find a solution that works for your plan and makes your goals financially attainable.

Planning your investment strategy

As an investor, you should consider several steps before forming an investment plan:

  1. Time available to invest before funds are needed. Your investment choice should be appropriate for when your investment funds will needed. Shorter-term needs may have a different strategy from longer-term needs.
  2. The amount of risk that is comfortable. Some investments have high returns, but higher returns can indicate more risk. Be sure that you are comfortable with the investments you are considering for your portfolio.
  3. Plan to diversify your portfolio. Diversification means holding many different securities in different industries and company sizes. Diversifying your holdings reduces your investment risk and increases potential returns.
  4. Consider your securities. Some investments require more time and attention than others. Potential returns can vary depending on risk of the securities.

Mutual funds are a great selection for investors who do not have enough time or do not wish to manage their own portfolios. The underlying portfolio of a mutual fund can easily provide diversification. Information on the fund will describe the securities being held in the fund and what investment style is being used. This information will allow you to make an informed decision whether the fund is the right investment for your plan.
