Hi everyone, I’m a complete stranger to investing – I have little knowledge and near zero experience. However I am now at the point in my life where I wish to start looking at investing to secure my financial future and I am hoping that someone here can offer me some advice or direct me to resources where I can start to learn about my options and how they do or don’t benefit me. About me: - I’m 25 years old. - I earn 50k a year (IT for the SA Government). - I live at home with my father and pay a token amount of rent and have standard living expenses (car rego, petrol, insurance, mobile etc). - I have no assets other than a car and several thousand dollars of musical instruments/equipment. - I have a disposable income of around $1500 - $2000 per month. - Due to my lifestyle up until now, I have only $2,000 in savings. By choice, I am now in the position where I am ready to leave home in the next 12 months and tossing up between renting and buying. In addition to my housing dilemma I am also aware of investment options I have such as Superannuation and the share market etc however I have little knowledge in these areas and how they can benefit me. That’s me in two paragraphs; any help would be greatly appreciated!
