Investments & Investing

The Fundamentals of Investing

Investing, whether for personal, retirement, tax strategies or other purposes is a science of principles. Once understood, these principles can be applied, implemented and monitored regularly to enhance the greatest likelihood of success while minimizing the potential of loss. Understanding these principles is simple but not easy. The skill comes not just from the understanding of the fundamental principals but the discipline to apply them whether times are good or bad. It also requires a willingness to assess what is really occuring rather than denying, hoping or rationalizing in either favorable or unfavorable market cycles. Our diversified investment advisors keep you on track.

The Categories of Investments
The categories of investment are endless, both in terms of possibilities and in combinations of those possibilities. However, for the purposes of being able to break it down to the basics for the purposes of our readers, we are limiting these to two categories: personal (including estate, custodial, fiduciary and so on) and retirement (including IRA, 401K, 403B, pension and so on) investments. Returns on personal investments, also known as non-qualified investments for IRS purposes, are generally part of an individual's annual tax filing. Returns on retirement investments, also known as qualified investments for IRS purposes, are generally not part of the annual tax filing. By clicking on the appropriate area of interest in the left margin, we hope you will be able to gain a much better understanding of the investment possibilities available.
