Understanding the basics of investing

Investment 101 – Did you know investing generally means putting money aside or buying assets, with the aim of generating an income or growing its value over time?

The chances are, you’re already an investor whether you know it or not.

In this short video, Jeff from AMP explains that if you’re a paid worker in Australia, you most likely have a super fund and that money is probably already invested in multiple asset classes.

While you may not be looking at your super day-to-day, the investment managers within your super fund are.

Watch this short video to get up to speed on the basics of investing, what your super fund does behind the scenes and what asset classes could be helping you to grow your money further.
