It’s important to know what you want to accomplish with your investments before you actually invest. Learn how to set your financial goals, get a handle on your cash flow, control spending, manage debt, and get on the path to saving and investing.
Setting goals help us meet life’s major objectives, from staying healthy to retiring with a well-feathered nest egg. Investment goals provide structure and purpose to the money we allocate to investment products, such as stocks, bonds and funds. Investing and investment goal setting go hand in hand with sound personal finance practices, such as building an emergency fund and managing spending.
