How did you get started in investing?
I got started in investing after reading up on how to properly save and after attending a seminar by a popular financial guru. Investments kasi is part of the 4 quadrants of financial security, so as soon as I built my emergency fund, I got into cooperative shares. After I saw the growth in my investment, I was encouraged to choose a VUL that had a 70/30 stock investment to bonds ratio.
What's the most important lesson you've learned from investing?
Never invest in any instrument that you don't understand. Otherwise, when you lose or gain, you won't know or understand what's affecting your investment. Learning that way will help you realize: itong pera na ito, hindi ako willing na ma-lose siya that way.
