Grad Bites: Introduction to Investing
Interested in investing but unsure where to start?
Dennis Harhalakis, Founder of Cambridge Money Coaching, discusses a simple approach to investing in the stock market, to build wealth over time. He also explains how to know who to trust, and how to spot potential scams.
This content is for information only and does not constitute financial or investment advice. As Dennis mentions in the video, investing involves risk, as the value of an investment can go down as well as up. So, you could get back less money than you put in. If you invest for the long term (5 years +), you are more likely to ride out any fluctuations in the market. It is recommended that you always get advice from a trusted source.
About Dennis Harhalakis
Dennis had a successful 30-year career in financial services before moving into money coaching. His career change followed a period of money anxiety in his own life and his mission to understand what drives money behaviour. Few people are taught how to manage their personal finances, and for many of us, it causes stress. Dennis coaches people to transform the way they think about money, helping them to reduce anxiety and other negative emotions, make better financial decisions and communicate in healthy ways.
