Ready to invest?

In this lesson, you’ll 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 two 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 you lose your job. To get started with investing, it can be helpful to work with professionals. Ask at your financial institution — many offer investment products and guidance.
