FAQ: Where should a new investor begin?

Welcome to FAQ!

We get questions from you guys all the time, about everything from asset allocation to interest rates to stocks to commodities. We thought this would be a great format to address some of these topics and give people some specific answers to things they’ve been wondering about when it comes to finance and investing.

In today’s edition, Michael Batnick, Ben Carlson and Downtown Josh Brown answer a very simple question that doesn’t necessarily have a simple answer. “Where should a new investor begin?”

We’ve built an online financial advice service for new investors called Liftoff that may also be of service, you can check it out here.

The book Josh referenced, Simple Wealth, Inevitable Wealth, can be purchased here
