For the past few years I've been regularly investing small amounts in equity funds through my insurance. Back in 2009, when I started this blog, I was interested in investing in Trust Funds, Mutual Funds and the Stock Market. The only problem was I couldn't come up with the money needed for the initial investment. Every time I reach a certain amount I usually spend it before reaching my goal.
A year ago I made the decision to straighten out my finances and limit my expenses. After a few months I eventually managed to invest in a trust funds. I read some books about investing and learned the ropes in how to minimize risk in investing in equities. I currently have a mixed portfolio of equity and bond funds. Although it took me a while to start investing in these funds. Investing in these funds regularly became easier after seeing the results of my investments.
I am now satisfied with the direction I am heading with my investments. I would have invested a substantial amount by now if only I had started investing earlier. Had I known that some trust funds or mutual funds have a program which allows you to invest in these funds with small monthly contribution, I would have invest in these funds earlier.
For those who want to start investing in trust funds, mutual funds or stocks but are having a hard time coming up with the amount for the minimum initial investment, below are a few investment companies which offer a monthly investment program with low monthly contributions.
