In your 40s, with luck, you’ve left behind the credit card debt and personal loans from your 20s and 30s. After all, these days, you’ve got enough to juggle and should be dealing with only one non-deductible debt.
With its rewards, however, investing can also be challenging and confusing. Whether you dream of a new house or an investment property, money for your children’s education or the comfort of security and freedom in retirement – understanding the principles of good investing is the foundation of achieving your financial goals. Achieving these goals shouldn’t be luck. It requires commitment, research and patience, to ensure the outcome will be anything but uncertain. And, as with most things, you should plan ahead before you start.
