Before you start investing, it will be best to understand your objective. Here are some questions to help you:
What is your capital?
How will you want to invest your capital? E.g. lump sum or an amount on a regular basis
How long will you want to stay invested? E.g. 10 years
What is your risk appetite? E.g. How do you feel about short-term volatility?
What is your objective for investing?
Thereafter, focus with the right investment strategy by knowing your investment objective. Then decide the tenure and decide whether to invest a lump sum or to do it via dollar cost averaging.
Finally, invest into assets that suits your risk appetite.
I share quality content on estate planning and financial planning here.
Before investing just because everyone says so, take a look at your own financial standing first especially in the current sitation we're in. Ensure you have an emergency fund saved up and paid off high interest debt.
Invest only what you're willing to lose, know your time horizon and investment goal, know your risk tolerance and which asset class you're looking to invest in. Seedly has written many guides regarding this.
All the best!
