Investing in your future: an explainer for students
You might think being a student is the first and only way to begin investing in your future but this is short-sighted. You’ve got to look bigger and think broader. The chances are you can already begin planning where your money will begin going before you even start earning it. Most students are focusing their life on studying, but some are earning, too. Of course, most of that money is going toward trying to eat, rent and so on. The money just can’t go to anything else, let alone savings or investment, because it’s needed right now. Yet, planning for your future doesn’t mean you need to begin acting now. You can start gathering details about how the stock market works without putting aside huge amounts of money. You can figure out what retirement means and why you should care, even if you’ve never worked a day in your life. Planning begins now, not later.
