Before you start investing, there are some basics you need to know and a few things you need to consider.

There are many elements to the financial markets and it could take a lot of years trying to understand it all. All the information you need is available but where do you start? The beginning is by far the most overwhelming part of this learning journey and is most likely why people do not bother or give up very quickly.

Below, I have detailed the steps to take and the points to consider before you begin investing.

I have broken these elements in to smaller, bite sized sections so you can access them individually as required. Read through them and spend time reflecting on the information. If more detail is required there are many other sites available but this will help get you started on the right path.
