Financial Advice for New Investors

If you’re new to investing, and looking for ways to make your entry into the stock market a positive and successful adventure, one of the first things you need to do is learn some money management basics.  Here are just a few ideas to consider:

Check your history.  Before you begin thinking about investments, be sure your day to day handling of finances is under control.  Get a copy of your credit report and be certain everything in it is accurate.  Get any errors that may exist corrected and removed form the report.  If you have unresolved credit issues, take care of them before investing money somewhere else.  Extra money that you may have right now should be allocated to fixing existing credit problems before it can be used for investing.

Don’t Go It Alone:  Once you are able to commit some funds to investing, your next step should be to seek out the help and guidance of a professional.  Working with a financial planner can help you to clarify your goals and objectives so you have an overall plan for your investments.  If you don’t have a personal financial planner, be certain that you can communicate openly with the company you intend to invest with.  It’s the only way to get the answers you need and the guidance you require.

Be Watchful: Investing isn’t something you set and forget.  As the economy changes and the markets fluctuate, it will be essential that your portfolio be adjusted accordingly.  This is not a place to get so set in your ways that you miss income generating opportunities.  This is one area where you can really use the help of a company or individual with investment experienc

Venture out of your comfort zone.  While it may seem intimidating and confusing to invest outside of your own economy, it is important to keep an open mind when it comes to foreign investments.  They could very well represent some of your best investment options.

Spend less to invest more.  Once you realize that you can start investing even small sums of money, it’s important to be vigilant about finding those funds.  Every extra cent you spend on credit card interest, or unnecessary purchases could be money available to add to your investment income.  Try to set up a savings plan where you can set aside even small sums of money on a regular basis that you can add to your investment fund.

Get organized.  You can’t expect to have successful investments if you have an unorganized and haphazard approach to your finances.  You need to organize every aspect of your financial life in one place.  Gather together all documents and paperwork related to banking, insurance, retirement funds, mortgages and anything else pertaining to your money, and keep them together in one secure location.
