The earlier you start investing, the more time you have for your investments to grow.

Start early

Make a plan to consistently set aside money for investing, even if it is just a small amount.

Be consistent: 

 Diversify your portfolio:   Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Spread your investments out over a variety of asset classes to reduce risk.

Stay the course:  Don’t let short-term market fluctuations discourage you. Stay focused on your long-term goals.

Keep your fees low:  High fees can eat into your investment returns, so try to minimize the costs of investing.

Manage your risk:  Understand your risk tolerance and invest accordingly. Don’t take on more risk than you are comfortable with.

Know your time horizon:  Consider how long you have until you need to access your money when deciding where to invest.

Stay informed:  Stay up to date on market news and trends so that you can make informed investment decisions.

Don’t try to time the market: It can be difficult to predict when the market will go up or down, so don’t try to time your investments.

Don’t let emotions guide your decisions:  It’s important to make investment decisions based on facts and analysis, not emotions.
