The image below shows four things to consider to
help you decide what kind of investor you are. Think about where you are on each
line. If you’re more to the left, you’re conservative. More to the right,
Retirement timeline: Are you
far away from retirement or getting close?
Risk tolerance: Are you very
comfortable with investment risk or not comfortable at all?
Income needs: Do you need
income now or can you wait until later?
Growth needs: Are you aiming
for high growth or more safety and stability?
Where do you fall on each line? And what kind of
investor does that make you?
