Why young Aussies, especially women, are investing in shares

Description

More young people, and more women, invested in the stock market for the first time in the last two years. 

 

This year’s annual Investor Study from the Australian Stock Exchange revealed that 23% of investors got involved in just the last two years - and a quarter of those new investors were aged 18-24.  Chenny Wulandari is a 29-year-old who has become an investor for the first time.   Scott Phillips is Chief Investment Officer for Motley Fool Australia.  Scott explains how and why younger Australians are investing in stock.

  

A decade ago only a third of new investors were women...now women make up 45 per cent of new investors.  What’s behind the increase and how hard is it to become a millennial investor.
