Core-Satellite Investing Tips

Core-satellite investing allows someone to passively invest while also adding some active positions, according to blogger and investing expert Theresa Bedford in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.

The Core: While core-satellite investing allows investors to beat the market without timing the market, it does increase risk and requires research on your part, according to Bedford.

Above: Bedford says that dollar-cost averaging, another investing strategy, involves investing a fixed amount of money over time in the same funds and stocks.

Pros and Cons: The advantage with dollar-cost averaging is that investors won’t miss out on gains, Bedford says, but it could result in an investor buying a stock when the price is high.

Final Thoughts: What investing advice does Bedford offer in 2022? Find out by listening to a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.
