Investment traps to avoid

Investing can be quite challenging, but the rewards make it very worthwhile.

Whether you are a novice or an experienced investor, here are three investment traps to avoid to maximize your returns:

Delaying: Do not delay any longer and start investing now! Many people delay investing because of financial reasons or lack of knowledge when it comes to different investment options.  Investing while you’re still young is crucial if you want to achieve your financial goals.

Paying too much: Stay aware of hidden fees and do everything you can to keep your fees low.

Not taking enough risk: To avoid the risk of losing money some people keep their money in cash, but that doesn’t contribute to helping you make enough to live a comfortable retirement.  Although shares can be unpredictable, a basket of quality shares held for the long term can deliver a significantly more attractive return than cash.
