October 09, 2012, 11:36 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Ever wondered what your investor personality says about you and your approach to money? Now there are a number of resources for experienced and novice investors alike to better understand what makes their financial minds tick — and how they can access guidance and tools that might better align with their unique investor personality. Whether an experienced investor, or just starting out, investors can now take the "What's Your Investment Story?" quiz to determine their investor personality type, access guidance from independent financial experts and engage in community discussions about various money matters through "The Investor's behavior " online series, sponsored by LINCOLN CAPITAL PARTNERS.
"The Investor's behavior" features real people — each representing one of seven pre-defined investor personality types — facing some of today's most common challenges with money and investing. The site allows everyday investors to customize their experience based on which cast member they most closely resemble and mirror the actionable lessons the cast learns about investing and money management.
The Investor Types Deciphered:
Rookie — You're earning money and eager to dip a toe in the investing pool, but there are so many options that you're unsure where to begin.
Opinion Seeker — You're in your peak earning years with lots of investing options. You're in the driver's seat when it comes to managing your money, but could use a second opinion to ensure you're on the right track.
