Responsible Investing

Responsible investing is the cornerstone of a safe, secure financial life.
Updated: Sep 26, 2022

On this page, we’ve compiled a list of important guidelines to help you make sound investment decisions, and we also provide a selection of resources to help you learn more about the impacts of irresponsible investing.

  • Don’t invest more than you can afford to lose – investments can be difficult to liquidate. Make sure you always have money available for emergencies.
  • Be cautious with leverage and shorting – with any investment that involves borrowing (short-selling and leverage), be aware that downside potential can be unlimited. Manage your risk carefully.
  • Unregulated brokers and exchanges – avoid unlicensed service providers wherever possible. When dealing with regulated platforms, your interactions are protected by financial laws.
  • Know the impacts of irresponsible investing – risking too much capital can damage your family’s financial situation, your mental health, and your credit score. If you are in excessive debt, seek help now.
