Looking to invest

Today there are a number of common investment strategies being utilised by individual investors. Each investment strategy is different, targeting a variety of asset classes, risk levels, potential returns and investment terms.

Before choosing an appropriate investment strategy it is important to define your overall investment objective and what you wish to gain from any investment. Once you have identified the investment strategy that best matches your requirements, you should research the due diligence that has been conducted as part of the investment proposal and, wherever possible, undertake your own research and due diligence. The following is an example of the minimum research you should conduct before entering into any form of investment.
