Why Investing and Compounding are Important Elements of Budgeting

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Have you managed to delay investing, like so many other people? After all, there are plenty of confusing terms associated with investing, and we’re all aware of how the economy is fluctuating. Sometimes it seems better to do nothing out of fear of doing the wrong thing. But when it comes to investing, it’s important to start sooner than later so that your money can reap the rewards of compounding.


Investing is no longer just for the wealthy. Today, with Social Security and pension problems, it’s important to understand the basics of investing and get started for your future. You can make your money work for you right now. There are sure to be mutual funds, stocks, bonds, and alternatives that are right for your investing style and your level of risk aversion. There are even environmentally conscious picks for the socially aware.


Once you educate yourself on the options, there’s no need to put off investing any longer. There is always going to be some level of risk, but investing is still the best way to put your money to work for you. If you’re still not sure what’s right for you, there are plenty of financial advisors waiting to help you decide on the best investing plan for you. Many employers offer 401 (k) plans and free financial counselors as part of the package.


By allocating your money in a diverse set of stocks and bonds and mutual funds, you’ll protect or “hedge” yourself against downward trends in any one particular class. For example, when business is suffering, often precious metals will be performing well on the market. By investing right now in several different categories, you’ll be on your way to compounding your money.
