Personal Money Matters

Personal Money Matters

As this Dikkop fiercely nurtures and protects its young, so too should we nurture and protect our personal finances. 

Personal finance is a term that covers managing your money as well as saving and investing. It encompasses budgeting, banking, insurance, bonds, investments, retirement planning, and tax and estate planning. 

Personal finance is about meeting personal financial goals, whether it’s having enough for short-term financial needs, planning for retirement, or saving for your child’s college education. It all depends on your income, expenses, living requirements, and individual goals and desires—and coming up with a plan to fulfill those needs within your financial constraints.
