How You Can Start Investing As A Student Or Young Adult by magazineguy(m): 9:59am On Mar 06, 2018
If you are a student, a graduate or young adult you might probably belong to the school of thought that “To Invest I Must Be Wealthy or at least have a steady means of income” and while this may seem true because of the risk and how complicated the Financial Market looks like from the outside, it is also very wrong to believe this notion.
You are never too young to invest, just like how depending on your investment choice, no amount is too small to start investing.

So How Do You Start?

The little change from your pocket money, NYSC allowance or business that you do, is worth more than you think.

Develop a Plan

This is a very crucial step, here you should start to determine how much you wish to invest based on how much you have at hand or how much you have saved up and the type of investment method you feel comfortable and the frequency of your investment.

There are some investment plans that require you deposit a one time principal for a duration of time, while you get compounded interest on it over the agreed period of time. While some investment plans require that you deposit a certain amount of money monthly, quarterly, biannually or annually. It all depends on your preference.

Research

Find about the best investment plans that suit the plan you developed earlier. Ask questions from people who are already into investment, go online and search for relevant investment plans, contact financial services company and speak to their advisors about your plan, so they can the best investment suited for you.

Invest in What You Understand

Never ever make the mistake of selecting investment plans or opportunities you do not understand, if not you might end up losing the little money you’ve saved. Ensure you get a very detailed information of how the investment package works and if you do not understand some of the financially fancy terms used, asked for it to be explained in simpler terms. Once you are very sure you understand how it works, you can now proceed to invest.

Monitor Your Investment

It is very important that you keep tabs on your investment. This is to help you know if your investment is performing or not, if some terms have been changed and help you decide if you need to adjust your investment type.

I doubt if this thread can go past page one since it is about something intellectual.

And they say that they are not too young to rule.

Exactly absolutely nothing
We read too many books in Nigeria
We need to develop the young guys the proper way.
Practical breakdown or experience would have been the best method of explaining the subject matter. I saw someone ask you what he/she can do with 400k.
That's the approach I use when coaching/Training the interns in my department.

If you can save N150k, I can show you how to get 40% profit from it in 7months and 100% profit from it in 8months, guaranteed. You can also make 40% in 6weeks but this is with a risk factor unlike the aforementioned ones.
