If you invest a small amount, for example, 5 thousand rubles per month, it may not be enough to buy all the necessary securities at a time. Financial expert I.

Imagine that you have compiled an individual portfolio, and if you summarize the cost of all papers in it, then you need to invest 30,000 rubles, but you can only approximately 5,000 rubles per month. What to do? Your task is to just buy assets for equal amounts in the same time. For example, the 5th day of each month purchase paper by 5000 rubles. What kind of paper to buy depends on your investment strategy.
