Name three different types of investments. What have you had the most success with? What are two benefits to using a stock brokers?

IRA - Individual Retirement Accounts are tax-advantaged investment vehicles for individuals

401(k) - A similar tax-advantaged investment vehicle provided through an employer, sometimes with a "match" in which the employer will contribute as well

529 - Another tax-advantaged investment vehicle which encourages users to save for future education expenses

I personally have not yet had the opportunity to invest, though it is on my list of short-term goals!

Stock brokers can give you greater access and flexibility with your investing when compared to leaving your money unattended in an account, and they may know what to do in different economic climates. But they tend to charge fees and do not typically "beat" the market.

Equity funds, bond funds, real estate investment trusts. I have all three in the form of exchange traded funds and each has a place in my portfolio

Treasury bonds, bills, a notes. All government issued debt instruments, the difference is the amount of time to maturity.
Municipal bonds can be beneficial depending on your level of income, as interest is tax exempt.

Bonds are loans an investor makes to an organization in exchange for interest payments over a specified term.
Annuities is a contract between you and an insurance company, in which the company promises to make periodic payment.
Funds are such as mutual funds, closed-end funds and exchange-traded funds—pool money from many investors and invest it according to a specific investment strategy. I have not yet had any experience in investing.

I am not familiar with investments. I only have experience with a 401k and I think it's a great way for you to save without stressing about it. I am not a gambler or risk taker when it comes to money.
