The Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI) launched Understanding Investing, an online resource which aims to give people useful information they need about investing.
Commenting on the new initiative, Denise Voss, Chair of the ALFI Investor Forum, said: “It is increasingly important that people take responsibility for their long-term financial security, and the way to do that is to invest, whether directly or through funds and other financial products. This website gives people information to help them understand investing – why they should invest, what different types of investments there are, what the risks are and how to plan ahead.”

The transcript of the video:
ALFI, the association of the Luxembourg fund industry, believes that investment funds are a key part of the continued growth of the European economy. And this is even more important giving you and I and our children and the younger generations will become more and more responsible for their own financial security, including retirement. Recently ALFI launched a website called understandinginvesting.org, and the purpose of this website is to educate investors, individuals and potential investors about investing in investment funds. On the site you will be able to find information about identifying your personal investment profile, how that investment profile can change over time and how investment funds can help you meet your financial goals. We’ve also taken the occasion of the launch of the understandinginvesting.org website to launch a series of podcasts called the basics of investing. This series focuses on individual situations, so four stages; students, young professionals, mature adults and retirees and how they need, what issues they have to address to invest during their various live stages. We’ve also introduced podcasts focusing on the costs of investing and how the performance of an investment fund progresses.
