Understand Investment Concepts and Risks
Insurance is basically the easiest financial risk management mechanism. Anything that poses a risk to a person’s financial condition should be insured. Although not everything can be insured, there are at least two types of insurance that are very important to have; namely life insurance and health insurance. For young people, these two types of protection are often ignored because they feel that the risk of getting sick and dying is not too big. Mental protection and health are sometimes considered as the needs of mature age groups who are already married. Of course, this assumption is not correct, because no one can predict the risk of getting sick or dying.
