7 Common Investment Terms & What They Can Mean for You
February 16, 2017
Congratulations! You've put money aside. So what do you do with it?
You know savings accounts and certificates of deposit pay relatively little interest. But you also know you want the money to help you reach your financial goals.
Welcome to the world of investing. Yes, it can seem bewildering. But it doesn't have to be. To help you get started, here's a look at seven common types of investments.
Types of investments
2. Mutual funds.
Bonds tend to provide more stability in an investor's portfolio, which can be valuable in times of market volatility. They can carry less risk than equities, but this comes at the cost of a lower return.
4. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
5. Closed-end funds.
6. Preferred stocks.
7. Convertible securities.
