It's never too late or early to start investing

Whatever you invest in, time plays a crucial role. Whether you’re investing to grow your wealth towards your children’s education or to retire comfortably, the sooner you start, the better - though it’s never too late to start. A financial adviser can guide you on the best ways to make your budget stretch and still have enough to put towards savings every month.

 

Jeanette’s top tips on investing

  • Time can be your best friend or greatest enemy. Start investing at a young age, you’ll reap the rewards of compound interest, but it’s never too late to start. Speak to a financial adviser about a new savings plan to make up for lost time.
  • Research shows that investment decisions are made around fear or greed. A good financial adviser will keep you rational and committed to achieving your long-term goal. Learn more about 7 habits of money savvy households.
  • Only 6% of South Africans will be able to retire with the lifestyle they enjoyed before retirement. If you’re part of the 94%, think about what will happen to you, and let that be your motivation to stop procrastinating.

Top tips for those who want to start investing


Warren Ingram, co-founder of Galileo Capital top investment tips to reach financial freedom are:

Get rid of debt

Get rid of debt as soon as possible so you can use that money towards saving and reaching your savings goals.

Start an emergency fund

Have an emergency fund of at least 3 to 6 months’ worth of your salary. You may want to consider a money market account.

Understand investing

Investing is for the long term. Let your money successfully grow through the magic of compound interest. Be patient and keep adding to your investment.

Watch your emotions

Don’t let your behaviour drive your decisions. Fear and greed are emotional decisions and could cost you in the long-term. Speak to a financial adviser who can offer rational advice.

Next week we share more insights on medical aid and insurance.

Stop procrastinating, start investing
