Managing your Own Pension Portfolio
Some people choose to manage their own pension and investment portfolios and they do this for a number of reasons. It may be due to a lack of trust, or that the value that they’re getting from the outsourced management of it isn’t worth the cost, or they just want to be in control so that they can decide what they do and don’t invest in. Whatever the case, you do need at least a basic understanding of investments to do it yourself.
One of the best things that you can do when investing is to choose safe things to invest into, and distribute your risks as much as possible. The most stable thing is generally gold, which almost always increases in value. Other commodities are also usually a solid investment, but if you’d invested in oil, then you’d certainly be regretting that decision right now.
