Take our Investment Ideas section, for example.

Rob Carrick's Portfolio Strategy covers life from an investor's point of view. Find out what your adviser thinks of you, how much you're really paying for your mutual funds and what Bay Street doesn't want you to know.

Readers looking for ways to be smarter with their money should bookmark our Let's Talk investing video series, which offers advice on everything from investing strategies, debt, retirement and insurance.

Savvy investors looking for investing ideas backed up by hard numbers should visit Number Cruncher, where Globe Investor journalists screen securities in an effort to find the very best investment opportunities.

The right-most tab on our page is the Dividends section, which is immensely popular among our income-investing readers. It's also where you'll find John Heinzl's Yield Hog column, which explores issues such as companies that are set to raise their dividend or whether it's better to buy bonds or a bond ETF.

Finally, our At the Bell section provides insight on companies that are about to make the headlines. Whether it's an impending earnings report, a product launch or a shift in the marketplace, this section gives investors an idea of what to expect once the markets open.

We'll have more in coming days on how Globe Investor can help you, no matter what type of investor you are.
