- Do I have extra cash?
Your money will take time to grow so expect that you will not be able to easily use the money you invested. As such, it is advisable that you keep your invested money separate from your immediate needs. The common advice is to have six months worth of income as an emergency fund.
- Can I handle the risks?
Investing in financial markets always comes with some level of risk. When it comes to investing in financial markets, returns are not guaranteed. The market value of investments can decrease depending on market performance.
On GFunds, that risk is reduced because the funds are professionally managed and diversified into different investments. This means less risk, in contrast, to directly investing in the stock market.
Different investments come with different levels of risks. Understanding your risk appetite will help you choose the investment product fit for you.
