How to Start Investing Money


Investing money for the first time requires research and in-depth questioning. Learn the top four best ways to get your investment money off the ground and rolling.

  • Mutual funds are great for new investors. A pooled source of various investor money, the fund manager invests according to the group's specified level of risk tolerance. Investors can invest minimum amounts due to the large pool.

  • Complete an Internet search of available funds under $250. Search by industry to determine a likely fund for your interests. The Internet allows investors to bypass brokers who charge a commission and join mutual funds as independent investors.

  • Learn if your employer allows employees to invest in the company. If such a program exists as part of a company-wide program, start with a small amount that can be used to grow a small return. After a period of investment, consider increasing the amount or diversifying your new portfolio with new start-up companies or industry strongholds like Microsoft and McDonald's.

  • Most employees are allowed to invest money into a 401(k) account after a 90-day probationary period. Once you meet the eligibility requirements, learn if your employer will match the dollar amount of each investment. Even if your employer does not have such a program, continue to invest as this money is tax-deductible.
