What about investing?
There are many different ways to invest in the stock market you can hold mutual funds, ETFs, index funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and even cash but the basic idea is the same. You buy shares in a company that’s growing and your shares grow in value. Over time, you expect your investments to grow in value too, which allows you to accumulate more shares of the company. Eventually you hope your investments grow in value enough that your money will grow in value too. Once your shares are worth more than what you paid, you can sell those shares to make a profit. This is a fundamental principle of investing.
The Money Smart app has been designed to help you understand this principle by providing a visual model that breaks the process down into bite size chunks, helping you understand each of the steps of the process.
The app provides a simple way to see the income generated by your investments in a number of different time periods. We hope you enjoy this app as much as we enjoyed designing it.
How it works
By using a chart and timeline, we’re able to show you your investments on a chart that updates automatically as your shares accumulate or lose value. We also help you visualize each step of the investing process and see where the income is generated as each investment is made.
