I have an account with Statewest Credit Society who have merged with Home Building Society. I have been offered the option of either AUD$3200 or 237 Shares in Home Building society.
I am not in need of the cash at the moment so i would like to invest it but have never done anything like this before. Should i take the shares with Home Building Society or re invest them else where.... Is there anyone out there who had experience with investing and shares that can give me an idea of what they would do.
Also is it worth me getting a financial advisor to make these decisions for me or would the charges involved not be worth it if i only have $3200????
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
