1.3 Nature Of Investments


Before you plan for any investments ask yourself these questions:

How do I invest?

First, get your finances in order and then pick a strategy that is right for you.

Where should I invest?

In stocks, bonds, certificates of deposits (CDs), mutual funds. We will focus mainly on stocks but give you the scoop on all of them.

When is the right time to invest?

There’s no time like right time now. Any time is as good as the other. But you will have to take a calculated decision.

In this program our focus will be on investment of surplus money that is available with us after we have met our needs. It is apt to mention few basic concepts of investment at this stage that include:

• Time value of money (see the reference).
• Return (we shall discuss it later).
• Risk (covered separately).
• Ability to cash the investment etc.
