Developing achievable saving and investing goals can help you on your road to freedom, security or affording the kind of lifestyle you want. Take the time to create a personal investment plan. Ask yourself these questions before you get started:

Investors should independently verify any investment opportunity as well as the background of the person and company offering the investment. State regulators provide detailed background information about those who sell securities or give investment advice, and about the products being offered. Investors should insist on working only with licensed brokers and investment advisers when dealing with both traditional and alternative securities investments, and should quickly report any suspicion of investment fraud. For more information regarding investing, contact the South Dakota Department of Labor & Regulations, Division of Securities, at 605-773-4823.
