Why Should You Bother To Invest?
Often when I speak to people about investing, they see it as a middle-aged pursuit of reading the share prices in the paper and talking endlessly about portfolios. Based on this perception, it is easy to see how this can be seen as a dull pursuit that can be dealt with at some point in later life. However, I recently also spoke to a colleague who was ‘saving’ any spare cash he had, not for a specific reason but because he did not know what to do with it. He had £50K in cash, increasing by £1000 per month.
