Important stages in the formation of an investment portfolio.
An investment portfolio is a collection of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), deposits, currencies, precious metals, and cryptocurrencies. They are distinguished not only by fundamental characteristics, but also by the degree of investment risk. And as a rule, the higher the return on an asset, the higher the risk of loss.
The most risky are shares of young enterprises, as well as futures; the least risky are short-term government bonds of developed countries.
If you want to build your own portfolio, there are a few key points to keep in mind:
• try to start investing in the types of businesses and instruments that are most understandable to you;
• if you need to invest in a particular industry, pay attention to its leaders;
• it is best to choose the most liquid instruments that you can profitably sell at any time;
• do not add risky financial instruments (options, deposits, futures) to your portfolio if you are not fully confident in them and in your investment skills.
Good luck building your own investment portfolio!
