Schultz Collins, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of a series of blog posts designed to acquaint you with investment basics. The intended audience is individual investors who may lack a background in finance and economics, or who may be uncomfortable reading material that is mathematical or statistical in nature. If you do not know the difference between a stock and a bond, this is the place for you!
You may, of course, skip to any topic of interest. Although the posts do not, in general, require that you read them in any particular order, if you wish to experience a step-by-step introduction to investing we suggest that you start at the beginning and review them in chronological order. This approach provides an experience comparable to a course in “Investing 101.”
The posts, however, are not constrained by the academic necessities of a course syllabus. They do not provide deadly dull expositions on convertible debentures, asset-backed securities, and other such sleep-inducing topics. Likewise, they try to avoid pounding you with arcane definitions. If you understand ‘investing,’ it is not particularly important to distinguish between various types of financial instruments. Investing is a process—not a dictionary of jargon terms that must be memorized. Technical discussions are held to an absolute minimum.
The blog format provides an opportunity for interactive discussion. We invite you to post comments whenever the spirit moves you to do so. Do you have topics that you would like us to cover? Are posts unclear? We look forward to hearing from you.
