Invest like a pro

Anyone can invest like a pro

Rounding it up

  • It doesn’t take a finance degree to start investing. You just need to figure out whether you want to take the time and interest to invest yourself, or use an investing platform.

  • Once you start investing, think about your time horizon. The longer it is, the more risk you must handle.

  • If investing feels like gambling, reassess your attitude and situation. You might be thinking too-short term, or your portfolio might be too concentrated.

  • Investment fees can be a huge drain on your savings. Take the time to research lower cost options that work for you.
