Here are some of his tips on how to protect your wealth. If you are an investor, or are planning to enter the world of investing Ted Bauman suggests investing in both stocks and bonds is the way to go. Both have positive features that are beneficial for the long run. Stocks can boost a portfolio financially and bonds are great way to protect your portfolio when the stock market crashes. The great thing about having a balanced mutual fund is dividends, which are a little know secret and can pay out during a lifetime every quarter.
The next tip is to create protection for your portfolio so you don’t lose it all. Sure, making a bunch of money in stocks overnight has a satisfying ring, but does not happen all the time and can be quite financially risky. If you truly want to be a successful investor, to it slowly over time. That is how others are successful. Experts who know the stock market are not worried about the nature of it. They know it can be volatile, but aren’t scared. Truth be told, successful investor create a long term strategy instead of a short term one. This requires lots of patience, research, and smart thinking to get there. It is like trying to win the lottery compared to investing in something long term. You have a way better chance winning in the long term plan area, that throwing your money at something and hoping it works, it just doesn’t.
