Astute Financial Considerations not Dependent on Portfolio Size

Regardless of whether you’re investing $5,000 or $50 million dollars, there are four things you should always remember before going into an investment.

Be aware of investment costs.

Staying cognizant of the various fees attached to your investment helps you make the most of your money. When you’re working with an adviser on these investments, ask questions – how much money will you have at the end of the year if your investment returns zero percent?

Know the risks associated with your investments.

For each opportunity for an investment to have an increased return, there’s also an opportunity for greater risk.

Ask your adviser the hard questions.

Find out if your adviser truly has your best interest at heart. See if they’re fee-only, or if not, how do they make their income from financial planning. Is their guidance going to make them money but lead you to a financial spot that isn’t the best it could be?

Keep your portfolio diversified.

Having a portfolio that’s diversified helps make sure you’re not concentrating on one big investment.
