Investing can be one of the best ways to build wealth for the long-term, but there are some things to keep in mind when creating your portfolio.  

  • Returns from any investment requires that the company stays in business. 
  • Stock prices may fluctuate up or down based on factors inside the company, political events, or market events. 
  • Inflation reduces purchasing power and may erode returns for people investing in cash equivalents. 
  • Interest rate changes can affect the business operations, profits, and losses of companies in many sectors of the market. 
  • The potential lack of market availability of an investment you want to buy or sell quickly can reduce potential gains but increase potential losses. 
  • All investing involves risk, including the risk of losing the money you invest. M1 does not provide investment advice or recommendations and you should do your own research before investing in any security.
