Why should I invest?
Investing can be a great way to make your money work for you.
Keeping money in a regular bank account (and out of the market) means it’s just sitting there, probably not gaining much value. When you invest money, it can grow and gain value.
By storing money in your regular bank account, you could be losing out on growth and dividends over the course of your working years.
The sooner you start investing, the greater your chances are of benefiting from growth in the market.
