Firstly, this place looks to be a great resource, but like anything it seems to be more about the commitment to learning that is the important skill.
I'm looking for a way to have my money work for me, something conservative somewhere in between a term deposit and losing my shirt! What books and learning tools would you recommend for a very beginner?
My aim is to be able to consistently add to an investment strategy that increases over time, and the property market at the moment doesn't appeal to me - so here i am. I'd ideally start with $20k to invest, with another 1-2k per month at my disposal.
Any advice would be helpful - feel free.
