Let us help you sort out the Tricks from the Treats
Let's face it, most of us are scared to play around with the stock market. But how will your savings gain significant interest by just sitting around in a normal bank account? The honest answer is, it won't. Now that's scary!
You Must be Willing to Take a Risk!
Few people get ahead by playing it safe, but there are less riskier options than others when it comes to investing. One of our favorite options here at Catalyst Academy are INDEX FUNDS. And there are many reasons for this, but the following are a few we would like to highlight for you:
  • There are typically NO SALES CHARGES you when you purchase the fund

  • They provide emotional freedom so you do not have to worry about which stocks to purchase; this allows you to pay attention to the things that matter most to you financially...saving more and spending less

  • Index funds historically outperform the vast majority of actively managed funds
  • Great diversification allows you to avoid putting all of your eggs in one basket

  • This investment option offers extremely low annual fees

  • Index funds are tax efficient
