Investing for Beginners:
Getting Started &
Avoiding Rookie Mistakes
"Is now a good time for me to start investing?" "But I don't know how to get started?" "How do I 'stay safe'?" "What's an ETF?" So many questions!
With all this talk of a market downturn, lots of people are wondering if now is a good time to get into the market. But if you've never invested before, or you've only just started investing...it can be a pretty scary step to take! There's so much jargon, so many different opinions, so much that can go wrong...It's hard to know where to start.
SkilledSmart has brought together a panel of financial experts to share their insights on investing in the stock market. We'll share our experiences with investing, and talk about the different ways to get started, what NOT to do, and more. We'll also open up the floor to take audience questions!
