About

Positivest is a question and answer site for everyone who is interested in personal finance and investing. Whether you are a seasoned professional or just starting out, we are all here to share our knowledge and experience and to learn from each other. With your help, we’re working together to build a knowledge base of detailed answers to every question about personal finance and investing. Our objective is to build a community of investors not driven by greed and short-term speculation but by responsible and sustainable investment ideals.

Please make sure that all questions, answers and comments you post are related to personal finance and investing. Questions, answers and comments not related to personal finance and investing will be removed.

All questions, answers and comments are visible to the public by default. In order to participate (e.g. post questions, answers and comments) you need to be a registered user.

Answers are voted up or voted down. Voted up answers rise to the top and show up first. The person who asked can mark one answer as the “Best Answer”. Please note that marking Best Answer doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the correct answer.

You earn reputation points when you create a question and your posts are voted up. As you earn reputation points, you’ll be awarded badges. Each badge is linked with privileges like the ability to vote, comment etc. See our points and badges system for more details.

Whether you are a seasoned professional or just starting out, remember that we are all here to learn from each other. Be kind and respectful to other users. If you’re here for help, be patient and make it as easy as possible for others to help you. Don’t forget that we are all volunteers here. Avoid inappropriate language, vulgar terms and anything sexually suggestive. Don’t engage in hostile interactions. If you see a hostile interaction taking place, contact us as soon as possible. Also, don’t forget to thank for others’ help!
