StashAway Financial Wellness: Investing Basics

Contents of this Jam

There’s an overwhelming amount of information available about investing, and so it’s difficult to find the right investment advice (what is the “right” advice after all?).

As a result, people shy away from the topic of investing all together, or make ill-advised financial decisions. Investing is vitally important when it comes to reaching one’s goals, as it can accelerate the growth of the hard-earned savings that we discussed
in Financial Planning Basics.

This module unpacks investing jargon to help individuals make responsible investing decisions.

Topics Covered
- Differences between various asset classes & portfolio types
- How to evaluate investment strategies and managers
- Relationship between risk and return
- Why it's important to be true to your personal risk preferences
