Welcome to Get Started Investing with Equity Mates, and welcome to the journey of investing. The stock market is the greatest wealth creating machine history has known, yet so many people miss out on it. Don't be one of them! When Equity Mates started we were just like you - unsure of where to start and overwhelmed by the jargon. We used Equity Mates to better understand the market and now we're here to break down the barriers to investing, to make it easier for you. In this series of podcasts we're going to equip you with the knowledge and skills to go from beginning to dividend - in other words, everything from setting up an account, choosing what to invest in, and making your first trade. So, let's get started - who are we & why do we invest?
In this episode you will learn:
• Who we are - Bryce and Alec (aka Ren) • Our personal investing stories • Why the stock market is the greatest wealth creating machine history has known (a.k.a the joys of compounding) • How investing early may help you retire early • The ways that investing keeps you informed about the world • Why a continuing theme for the series will be 'just get started' • Where to find us, and how to join our community
