Ready to invest?

Learn the basic guidelines for smart investing and how to get started.

Most financial advisors say you’re ready to invest if you have:

  1. Enough savings to cover three to six months of expenses
  2. Debts low enough that you can comfortably pay them

Note: Before you start to invest, be sure you’re prepared to cover your expenses in case of an emergency, a sudden illness, or if your spouse loses a job. To get started with investing, it can be helpful to work with professionals. Start with your financial institution — many offer investment products and guidance.
