About

ABCs of Investing was created to help educate people who have little or no investment knowledge. There will be one short and simple post every week.  Every post will cover a small aspect of investing basics in a simple, easy to understand manner.

Most people who aren’t passionate about investing don’t want to spend a lot of time learning or reading lots of books so a quick post once a week will be the perfect way to improve your knowledge.

Each post is a topic by itself and they are not in any kind of order. You can start reading the blog with any post. If there are topics which have other, more introductory posts which should be read first, then they will be clearly linked on the post.

The intention is to give readers some knowledge and confidence so that they can chart their own investment path. Knowledge is the key to being a successful investor and it doesn’t matter if you do your own investing or work with an advisor, the more knowledge and information you have, the better off you will be.

The best way to keep up with this site is to subscribe to the posts by
email (new posts will arrive in your email) or by RSS – posts will appear in your reader.
