Infographic for Beginning Investors
Thought this could help clarify some of the basics of the different types of investing for beginners. I knew when I started I didn't understand the options and differences between them. Also provides some terms which are useful to know when getting started.

Yipe. I hadn't looked at this until today.
You are hopelessly misinformed - mutual funds ARE stocks. And 401k/IRA are ACCOUNTS, not investments. You open a Roth Retirement Account and then fund it with cash, CDs, bonds, stocks, mutual funds, whatever - so 3% to 8% is meaningless - and so is volatility.

This is clearly an ad for your kickfurther service, so I won't take the time to add a detailed answer. But I will add some advice to you. If you are going to propagate an info graphic that is comparing your product to investment vehicles and strategies, you might want to take the time to accurately reflect your comparative market. Further, I would be concerned with with satisfying truth in advertising standards. I see that there is a tiny disclaimer at the bottom, but can you really back up a 20-35% annualized return with an 8 month maturity horizon?
