Vicky Kirby-Edward Jones Investments
Written by Carol Beddingfield
Pay yourself first! This rule of thumb seems so simple. Yet in today’s high cost of living, this goal seems so out of reach.
Investing is the true way to survive during an unstable financial market. There are many companies in Fort Payne that can guide one through a financial strategy.
Vicky Kirby, financial advisor for Edward Jones, states that the key to a financially secure future is to be responsible for planning and to be educated about the available choices for success.
Since 1994, Vicky has been encouraging her clients to start investing as early in their career as possible. The biggest misconception is that a lot of money is necessary before you seek the advice of a planner.
Most employers not longer provide pensions and very few create 401 K programs for their employees. The responsibility is therefore placed on the individual.
A written strategy will force one to clearly recognize the investment choices that fit personal goals. Don’t invest in get rich schemes, but in quality. Diversify by owning stocks, bonds, and cash. Always review your strategy annually.
Tax laws will have an affect on your investments. Be sure your investor is knowledgeable of the constantly changing laws.
Vicky is certified in many aspects of investment planning. It should not be scary to invest. It will be scary to depend only on social security for retirement. Make an appointment with Vicky today to start planning for financial freedom. Call 845-2610.
