Why Invest?

  • Grow Your Money
    Investing your money can allow you to grow it. Most investment vehicles, such as stocks, certificates of deposit, or bonds, offer returns on your money over the long term. This return allows your money to build, creating wealth over time.

  • Save for Retirement
    As you are working, you should be saving money for retirement. Put your retirement savings into a portfolio of investments, such as stocks, bonds, unit trusts, real estate, businesses, or precious metals. Then, at retirement age, you can live off funds earned from these investments. Based on your personal tolerance of risk, you may want to consider being riskier at a younger age with your investments. Greater risk increases your chances of earning greater wealth. Becoming more conservative as you grow older can be wise, especially as you near retirement age.

  • Earn Higher Returns
    In order to grow your money, you need to put it in a place where it can earn a high rate of return. The higher the rate of return, the more money you will earn. Investment vehicles tend to offer the opportunity to earn higher rates of return than savings accounts. Therefore, if you want the chance to earn a higher return on your money, you will need to explore investing your money.

  • Reach Financial Goals
    Investing can help you reach big financial goals. If your money is earning a higher rate of return than a savings account, you will be earning more money both over the long term and within a faster period. This return on your investments can be used toward major financial goals, such as buying a home, buying a car, starting your own business, or putting your children through university.
