Virtual Investing Made Easy

By Alisha Johnson, Ensley Branch Library


If you are like me, you are always seeking new avenues to make your money work for you. Traditionally, starting a savings account has been the tried-and-true way to save a few coins, but over the years there have been a number of online investment strategies developed to help you do just that. If you are feeling a bit unsure of where to start, there are a few online options to give you the nudge you need.

  • Acorns – Uses “roundups” to invest when you make purchases by using your debit card allowing access to one portfolio offering
  • Robinhood – Works like Acorns but allows for diverse portfolio options
  • Stash – Deals with individual stocks no diverse portfolios

Analyze your financial situation, do a bit of research and discover which investment strategies work best for you.
