In this module, you'll learn the "nuts and bolts" of investing through two online resources: an investment course developed especially for farm families and a home study course for consumers. You'll also be able to link to an online quiz to determine your investment risk tolerance level and use an Excel spreadsheet to analyze the way you divide your money among asset classes such as stocks, bonds, cash equivalent assets (e.g., money market funds), and farmland/business assets.
