A fundamental rule to follow when you invest your money is to diversify your investments.

A good way to lower risk is to spread your money among a variety of investment products instead of putting it all into a single investment.

Another good way to diversify your investments is to invest in several companies, industries or areas of the globe.

Planning involves having a good game plan and sticking to it. Your plan should include:

  • How long you want to invest for
  • The return you expect
  • What actions you’ll take if your investments fluctuate.

With a good game plan, you’ll be less prone to react emotionally to steep market gains and losses.
