Just like applying for a new job or starting a new business, investing always carries risk. While you can earn lots of money from well-chosen investments, you can also choose bad ones by mistake and lose a lot. Do you prefer safety and lower volatility, or do you prefer riskier and more volatile investments that can generate more income?
Here’s a short guide on how to choose investments based on your risk tolerance.
Disclaimer: Do your research! No matter how “safe” or “good” an investment is, it’s worthless if you get scammed because you didn’t study what you’re buying!
