About the Book:
The Daily Telegraph Guide to Investing is your complete guide to the reliable opportunities and exciting niches that could help you boost your bank balance and make the most of your cash pile. The world of stocks, shares and investments can seem intimidating but, with the right information at your disposal, you will be able to work out how best to protect and boost your savings.
Whether you're a total beginner or a more experienced investor keen to learn about some new options, this easy-to-understand guide covers many of the various asset classes and alternative investments that are currently available to you. Each investing opportunity is assessed for levels of risk and potential of returns, from the safer options (including bonds, equities, ETFs, gold and property) to the riskier (including buy-to-let, FOREX, cryptocurrencies, futures and options).
The Daily Telegraph Guide to Investing gives you the straight-forward advice you need to make sensible decisions about your hard-earned wealth. From the glamorous (including fine wines, whisky, classic cars) to the quirky (including lego, stamps, memorabilia), this guide will give you a firm understanding of investment principles and what to look out for. Technical terms and phrases are all made clear and full guidance is provided on the potential pitfalls, dangers and scams that can face investors.
UK readers will probably find this book more useful than US readers as it covers retirement accounts available there, rather than IRAs, Roths and 401ks. Still there is a lot of general investing information and the book covers some investments like FOREX that you see on blogs but rarely in investing books.
