Investing. You've Got This.

But let us know if you have any questions.

Tu dinero. It’s kind of like your baby. Think about it. You make it. You take care of it. You’re proud of it. You want it to grow, thrive, and, eventually, get a job. You want it to be there for you when you’re old.

 

That’s what investing is for. It helps turn your money into the most hard-working, dedicated money it can be.

 

But we know. It’s your money. You want to keep it close. You want to bundle it safely into a savings account, or keep it under el colchón for easy access. But if it’s going to work for you some day, then you’re going to have to put it to work now. The sooner the better.

 

But, um, what does investing actually mean? Let’s break it down.

Investing means participating in the stock and bond markets. That includes buying a small piece of a large company and lending money to governments. As the investments grow, they pay interest to the investors. (Fancy people also call earned interest a dividend.)

 

The bigger the sum invested, the more interest is earned. And as your money grows thanks to interest, your invested sum gets bigger. Over time, there's a snowball effect called compound interest. That basically means, making money on your money.

 

Naturally, companies have ups and downs, so there is some risk involved. But you can minimize it by diversifying your investments. Finhabits is a service that guides you to make the right investments depending on your profile, preferences and goals.

 

The trick is to get into the habit of investing. It's like exercising! It works better when you do it regularly. It's fine to start with small amounts, as long as you start.

 

Are you planning for a dream vacation, a new house, your kid’s college education, or securing your retirement? Finhabits can help. Learn how investing $5 a week can make a real difference in the long run. Visit Finhabits.com.
