It’s completely normal and everyone have the right to ask this question!
With Raiz, not only you can have the access to investment and financial education, but we want to make sure you have that confidence and feel safe in this exciting investment journey with us!
But before that, you need to understand about investing in general.
Investing in general.
Investing is a way to potentially increase the amount of money you have. The goal is to buy assets, and hopefully sell them at a higher price. Assets are things like stocks, properties, unit trust funds, gold etc.
For example, you have bought 1g of gold for RM230. 1 week later, the price is RM210 per gram – so you are at loss. But after a month, the price goes up to RM250 per gram and you sold it. Now you have made RM20 profit. Congrats!
So your investment could go up and down every day – depending on the market movement. That is market risk.
