Three easy investor resolutions for 2014

​Wondering what resolutions you should make for 2014? Check out our list of three easy commitments that investors, and those thinking of investing, will be able to keep:

  1. I will learn more about investing. Making financial decisions can seem overwhelming, but we all know it’s something we need to pay attention to, especially when planning for retirement. Break down the mystery - browse through our free ASC brochures or take The Basics of Investing, our in-classroom and online course offered at Mount Royal University (Calgary) and Metro Continuing Education (Edmonton).
  2. I will consider the help of a registered financial adviser. The qualified recommendations of someone registered with the ASC can go a long way in helping you manage your investments. Watch our video Who’s Taking Care of Your Money? and confirm registration of anyone offering you an investment.
  3. I will take time to do my own research when considering investment opportunities. It’s important to avoid making quick decisions when it comes to your investments. Plan ahead and don’t put yourself in situations where you feel put on the spot to make an immediate decision. Read about investment seminars and cold calls and make use of ASC’s enforcement information so you know what you might be getting into.

The start of each year is an opportune time to take stock (pun intended) of where we are with our investments and where we would like to be. Research shows that if you tell people that you are making a commitment, you are more likely to stick to it. So share these resolutions with friends and family by sending them a link to this blog, and challenge them to join you in having a great start to the financial year.
