Let the investing begin

I was looking through Reddit in some of the finance subreddits I follow.

I came across an app called FreeTrade, an app based in the UK which acted very similar to Robinhood. Free comission trading! I got myself in I signed up and placed £3,000 in.

I split the between 3 ETFs these were VWRL, VGOV and VFEM. This would give me strong coverage on world markets and UK goverment bonds.

I am not going to lie, I didn't really know much about ETFs or what they were at this point. I just knew it would give me good coverage as a decent risk level.

That was that. I was invested in the stock market.
