Personal Finance to Usher in the New Year

Who is not interested in some down to earth advice? These are some personal finance tips to kick start the New Year in style. Some popular issues have been addressed, such as the recent emerging markets etf, ING sharebuilder and a number of topics. If you have spent at least a bit of time on the Internet in the recent months, you may have noticed the buzz connected to ING Sharebuilder. There is a whole number of discussions, reviews, promotions and ads related to the service you will see. The hype is what made many people stop and think, although there have been some good reviews. Note that ING Direct is a much respected name in the banking business. Actually, ING Direct and Sharebuilder have quite a good thing going on. There is a whole number of reasons why.

The thing is, when push turns to shove, and when the measly interest rates on offer from banks and institutions start bothering people too much, is when online banks like ING start gaining in popularity. ING Sharebuilder is the investment service for the ING direct online bank, and is an excellent service, as far as efficiency as well as profitability goes. The investment account has a good amount of flexibility. With the ING Sharebuilder, you can start investing with as little as even fifty dollars. You can register for an investing account in the stock market, buy stocks for as less as four dollars, even set the account to buy and sell automatically according to the schedule set by you. The investments made at the ING direct are taken care of by Sharebuilder Securities Corporation, which is a member of the FINRA/SIPC, and is a subsidiary of ING. This is not a bad personal finance service.

With respect to the emerging markets etf, there are a good number of reasons why you should have your senses about you when you deal with emerging markets. There are many countries that are emerging economies, and keeping your money in the United States, or your home country will certainly not be the best thing to do if you want to take advantage of the growth potential.It is true that the ETF’s or exchange traded funds keeping track of emerging markets are having an exemplary run. Of course, ups such as those shown in two thousand five such as South Korea upping to fifty seven, Brazil fifty six and Mexico forty nine, and the overall Emerging Markets (EEM) to thirty four per cent, are indicators of just why you should invest in emerging markets etfs. Markets such as Singapore, with a low risk are looking pretty attractive.

There are extreme views about the whole emerging markets etf scenario both from respected sources such as Morgan Stanley and BCA research, the latter for, and the former against. The truth however, may lie between these, and certainly, the emerging markets will outperform perhaps more mature markets, although do not expect something in the nature of a shoot up growth. Use options to cover your back. Safeguard your personal finance.
