When it comes to investing there is a lot of information available out there and keeping up with the terminology and various strategies can become overwhelming. Morningstar has put together a terrific resource to help investors sharpen their skills in various aspects of investing called the Investing Classroom.
The classroom is put together like college courses with 100 level courses being introductory and 400+ level courses being relatively advanced. This allows individuals at all knowledge levels to partake in the courses and work through the material in a progressive manner. The classroom covers four main areas:
- Mutual Funds
- Portfolio Allocations
Each course is structured with plenty of reading material and examples about the underlying topic and then you are presented with a quiz at the end of each course which are graded. The best part of the courses are that with each correct answer you accumulate points that can be used to obtain many great rewards. There are books, Morningstar fund and stock catalogs and even a free six-month premium membership (A $90 value!).
You do need to register in order to accumulate points, but registration is completely free. So what are you waiting for, start learning today: Morningstar Investing Classroom
