ETFs for Beginners
Angela Thompson - Sharesight | How do you track your investments?
Angela Thompson is the senior digital marketing and affiliate marketing manager at Sharesight Portfolio Tracker. While she'd worked at Sharesight for a couple years and heard people talking about shares, investing, ETFs and micro investing, she hadn't taken the leap herself. It was through a colleague, also in marketing that she bought her first ETF. Angela really needed someone that she could identify with to help her take the plunge. Now she takes her investing seriously regularly funding her account and managing her own asset allocation.
"I think in the past, it's been seen as this massive barrier, that you have to understand everything about the market before you jump into it. But there's so many other things that we do. When you learn to cook, you don't know every single ingredient in every single recipe in the world, you just learn how to make one thing and then you make that well, and then you move on to the next thing and investing, I think can be like that. There's obviously those few baselines that you need to understand, but you don't have to understand derivatives and options. When you want to buy your first ETF, just start do your research. There's so much great content about it. Do a bit of research."
