How to choose mutual funds?
To choose investment funds that are best suited to your needs, first you need to determine your investor profile with help from a mutual funds advisor.
As you know, there are a wide variety of investment products available, so why not seek the expert advice of a financial professional: a mutual funds advisor.
The mutual funds advisor will guide you through the process of building an investment portfolio that is in line with your needs and your financial goals, all in accordance with your investor profile.
In creating your investor profile, the advisor will offer a professional approach to diversifying your investment portfolio, and will ask you about the following: your goals and investment horizon, your personal situation and financial position, your investment knowledge and your risk tolerance. In other words, there are financial products suited to every investor profile, from the most conservative to the most aggressive.
Please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with your Credential mutual funds advisor. Your advisor will help you make the best choices based on your investor profile, and help you diversify your investment portfolio.
Why diversify your investments?
Diversifying means spreading out your investments among several asset categories, including:
- Fixed-interest securities (e.g. bonds);
- Growth stocks (e.g. common stocks).
Invest for success
Yes, security comes at a cost! Reducing your portfolio's level of risk limits its potential performance over the long term. The more stocks in a portfolio, the higher the return.
Advice that pays off!
Did you know that a successful investment is more than just a series of transactions? Anyone can invest. Studies show that investors who rely on the help and support of a financial professional accumulate far more wealth, are better protected and are far better prepared for retirement and unforeseen events than those who do not seek help.
A qualified financial professional can provide an objective point of view based on knowledge and experience. They can help you discover investment income possibilities that you might not have been aware of.
