Thinking about investing



When you turn your mind to the prospect of investing in the sharemarket there are a few things to consider.


Consider why you want to invest in the market – what are your investment objectives? Consider whether these objectives are sound and realistic and how you are going to achieve them, and last but not least contact a broker licensed with the Exchange. This goes to mapping out your investment strategy. Then there are the practicalities of actually investing – of doing it.


The primary purpose of this investor education section of SEM's website is to help you do your homework before you then contact a broker for investing on the stock exchange. And of course, this is just the start of the journey.
