Your journey to financial fitness requires both saving and investing. Often times, people use the terms interchangeably but they are actually very different tactics and are both fundamental to attaining financial security.
When you save, you are putting money away for future use which could be a goal or an emergency. When you invest however, you are purchasing assets that are likely to generate more money over time. The major factors in deciding which option to pick are time, risk and gain or returns.
Saving and investing both have a place in our financial plan and therefore should go hand in hand. You just need to know how to allocate money to each option, depending on the kind of decision you need to make.
