In this article I don’t include robo-advisors for mutual fund accounts, as they are very common. You can easily find the information you need about them by searching.
I have a keen interest in investing, especially in the stock market. My advice to any young new investor is to begin by investing in yourself- your knowledge. Be it going school or learning a craft. Then you may begin investing for financial gains. My second advice is to beware of fees involved in investing and try your best to skip the middleman or reduce the cost paid to such person or company. As the notable quote by Ben Franklin goes: "Beware of expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship."
This page provides more details for those who are interested in using futuristic investment platforms, which tend to be investment avenues that are mobile focused, cheap, and/or collaborative investment.
