The goal of investing is simple: Build wealth you can spend now, use later in life or pass on to the next generation. But with so many strategies to choose from, the best path forward for you can only be determined through research and by knowing how the different types of investments work. This page is your guide to many of the options.

If you’re looking for a more hands-off approach, or you just want help getting started, consider talking to a financial advisor who can help you build a portfolio or using an automated investment account.
