First off, congratulations! If you’ve stumbled upon this blog then chances are you’ve been thinking for a while now how you can make your money work for you, and not the other way around. And since you’ve found your way to itrust invest, you might also have a little one in mind who you’re eager to give a financial head start in life.
If you’ve answered yes to any of these, you’ve come to the right place. For a lot of people investing can be a great tool to help achieve personal and financial goals. However, many newcomers can struggle to find where to begin. It’s tough parting ways with your hard earned cash for the first time, where there is a very real possibility of making a wrong decision and regretting it shortly after.
Have no fear though! What may be of comfort is that you’re not alone in this journey. In their 2020 Australian Investor Study the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) announced that close to a quarter of current active investors have entered the market within the last 24 months, and of these new entrants approximately 25% are young investors aged 18-25, and 45% are women. So, every day more and more Aussies are waking up and starting their investing journeys and have exactly the same questions and queries as you.
To help along your investment journey, the team at itrust invest has worked hard to develop an innovative and easy to use investing platform. This platform provides all investors, new and experienced, with a low cost entry point into high quality investment options, with all of these investment options aiming to provide attractive returns over the medium to long term. All in all, it is a super simple way to start working towards your Beneficiaries’ financial future with one-off or recurring payments.
Along with our mission to make investing simple, we also believe in plain English, avoid complicated jargon, and follow a few simple rules. Some of these rules include:
- Markets can be volatile, so only invest cash you can afford to lose
- Always do your own research & make up your own mind
- Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance
- Investing is a marathon, not a sprint
We also believe in this saying, adapted from a long time ago:
The best time to start investing is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.
So what are you waiting for?!
