Chris Linkas – Invest While You are Young, You Won’t Regret It

Majority of young people seem to delay their investment plans until they are financially stable. But the fact is, investing while still young, especially during the age of twenties is more advantageous and beneficial due to the following factors listed below.



Although money seems to be always tight, young adults have the advantage of time due to their age. This means that they can wait for their investments to profit and still have time to reinvest the gains that were earned. The compounding scheme allows investors to produce wealth in a matter of time for this only requires time for reinvestment.


Take on More Risk

Young adults who still have more years to earn can withstand additional investment risks compared to people who are already in their retirement age who opt to invest in ventures that have lower risk possibilities like certificates of deposit and bonds says Chris. Whereas, young people can withstand more volatile investments that produce bigger profits.


Learn by Doing

Due to the prolonged learning trajectory needed to study the markets for investment, young people have the advantage because of their age. They have more time to correct investment mistakes and recover losses.


Tech Savvy

Young people are naturally tech savvy because they were born at an age where every appropriate technological tool is available to give numerous chances to learn the technology associated with investing in the markets such as using a servicer/platform, which is likewise utilized by Chris Linkas’s Fortress Investment Group.


Human Capital
