Provisions: A Guide to Simple Investment

OS X 10.10
Investing sounds scary, but it doesn’t have to be. Investing yourself can be simple, low-maintenance, and low-cost. Use Provisions to guide you through creating a personalized investment plan, so you can keep and make more money. Why Invest Yourself? When you give your money to someone else to invest, such as a mutual fund, a percentage of your money is taken off the top to pay for the fund—even when the fund loses money! “Even small differences in fees can translate into large differences in returns over time.” Some actively managed funds can pressure you with sales tactics to invest in funds with higher fees or higher risk, making them richer but you poorer.
