I am frequently asked, “How much money do I need to start investing in tax liens.” Well, that all depends on what your goal for investing is. If you’re using tax investing as a way to invest for the future, then you can get started with a couple of thousand dollars. All too many people simply look to make a quick buck in the market, without realizing that the vast majority of the world’s top investor have achieved that status by holding stocks for the long term. Large private investors also hire fund managers and refer to them as wealth managers.
Where not to invest money now: long-term bonds and long-term bond funds. An investment representative will ask them their tolerance for risk and take their money and invest it for them. You’ll need either an individually licensed agent or a brokerage firm to help you buy and sell bonds, stocks and mutual funds.
If you are in the short-term, low risk category then your investments should be in the safer, more stable areas with lower returns. They will also have to interact with investors and liaison with clients for financial planning. I also like to include the broad spectrum of mutual funds, to be discussed later, in the range of medium risk investments.
The Mutual Fund managers are tasked with maintaining a high dividend investment vehicle, and are expected to trade as market conditions warrant; the ETF owns every security in its underlying index, all of the time, regardless of market conditions. If you are familiar with stocks, bonds, or Forex exchanges, then you will understand crypto-trading easily.
There are dozens of others that produce more income than any of the ETFs or Mutual Funds mentioned in the “best of class” Google results. Investing may seem daunting for a lot of people. Mutual funds are typically well diversified in many stocks and so they are safe by nature.
